Heyaa!

I was just wondering if i upgraded my pc's GPU and PSU will the components fit? this is my pc
Specs at the moment

Intel Core i5 3330 @ 3.0 Ghz 4 cores

8GB ram ddr3

AMD HD 6670 2GB

2 TB of memory

Windows 8

PSU: Channel well technology, 450w Max 220v 47-63 Hz

MoBo: MSI H61mp31/w8

And this is what i will be upgradeing

2GB MSI GTX 660 Twin Frozr III OC 28nm PCIe 3 0 x16 6008MHz GDDR5 GPU 1033

Corsair Builder Series CX600M 600W Semi-Modular PSU Power Supply

I have looked on the MSI website and at the MoBo i currently have and it dosent say the card is supported. but i was looking around another forum/asking questions and they said it would work fine as long as i disable a start up feature? They got this information from the MoBo manufacturer.

Thanks for taking your time reading this :)  i hope you can help x

The card is Pci-express 3.0, and so is the slot on the board, so there shouldn't even be a question of compatibility.

To determine whether the card will physically fit in your case, please specify the make and model of case you're using.

Unfortunately, that's a pre-built case, and they don't include details like maximum graphics card length in the specifications. It's a micro atx case, which is smaller than an average ATX case, so it might limit the graphics card length. If you can't persuade you father to let you borrow his tape measure, why don't you buy your own at a local hardware store? You can probably find one for less than $10 that would suffice for this.

I had taken this to private messages due to forum issues a couple of days ago, but now that the forum seems to be working again, I'll post things here. Based on the images you provided:

The msi gtx 660 will fit.

As far as the psu, the CX600M has the same dimensions as the Channel Well you're replacing: 150mm x 140mm x 86mm, so it will fit as well.
