Yo guys I am planning on getting a video card for my PC. So I shouldn't really say upgrading since I don't have one but whatever. I am looking at this card for awhile now im really set on it but im not sure if it will fit in my case. I don't want it to be to big and not being able to close my pc. So I just came here to double check since everyone provides good answers, feedback, and suggestions. On that note if you have a suggestion that you think will be better I will gladly look at them.

PS I already ordered a new PSU so that won't be a problem.

I cant see it being too big for the case. Normally a graphics card is too big because of the cooling but it is only small on that card.

The GPU HD7750 is SMALL for this case so don't worry.

And better get a GDDR5 version, it would do much better (Cause HD 7750 is powerful enough but DDR3 would hurt her performance). Even there is rumor that next-gen APU would use GDDR5 memory 'cause current DDR3 memory LIMITS the IGP's performance.

Here is one of the GDDR5 7750: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And 2GB Video RAM won't do much help in entry-level or mid-low level GPUs.
Only for good GPUs like HD 7800 series or GTX 600/700 series who need large video ram.

This GPU HD 7770 would do quite a bit better than HD 7750 and won't be too expensive but make sure that your PSU has a 6-pin conductor.

Thank you SO much for your help. I was actually looking at both of those cards I was just wondering if they will fit in my case. And I doubled checked yes my PSU I ordered does have 2 PCIE 6+2 so no worries there. I got it for $60 which is not bad I did want to go modular but this will do fine.
