Hello i have a hp p7-1534 http://s1123.photobucket.com/user/area51reopened/media/... http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Docume... and im wondering will a EVGA GTX 760 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... fit in my computer and work. I also am getting a 650 wat PSU so no need to worry about the 300 wat standard psu. Thanks in advance and will choose a best answer

Grab a ruler and check if you have 9.5 inches of clearance parallel to the PCI-e x16 slot.

Make sure your PSU is from a reputable brand. Which PSU are you getting?

it should fit just fine. the board itself is 9.6 inches and the graphics card is 9.5. even better it wont block any of your sata ports because they are placed well on the board.

SeaSonic's reputable. Have you checked the measurements yet?

Yes, those have non-reference coolers and probably non-reference boards as well. Generally there's no reason to buy reference unless you have special concerns (water block compatibility, small case/thermal issues, etc.) Non-reference cards tend to be clocked higher and cool better.

The MSI Twin Frozr is 10.25" and the Gigabyte Windforce 3X is 11.62". In hindsight, those are probably worse choices than the reference EVGA 760 for your case. Sorry for the confusion.

My final recommendation is the EVGA GTX 760 with the ACX cooler: 9.5" and no centrifugal fan.
