Ok so I have an HP P7-1520(MotherBoard=Foxconn 2ADA) with intel Hd 2500 as it's graphics,
It has a Intel core i5-330 CPU @3.00 ghz and 6gis of ram.
As you might know integrated graphics are pathetic, That's why I need to get dedicated graphics,
My power supply is only 300w which won't do any good with a card that requires external power,
I need a new power supply, My current one is around 6x6 in measurements so something similar so it can fit in my case, Atleast 500w or higher, One that will work with my pc,
Next for a graphics card I need one that will obviously work with my PC(I have a PCIe 2.0 slot but you can still use a graphics card for PCie 3.0 in it, Am I correct?) My pc's case isn't that big. It can be longer then 7" or it wont fit and it can be that wide, I want to fastest one I can get for under 200 and can work in these requirements, I am very new at this, I just don't know what to do anymore but ask here in this forum. I really need help with this stuff, A graphics card under 200 is what I am looking for,
So hope any of you guys can help,
Thank You :)

Oh crap, I made a mistake, I mean to say It CANT be longer then 6 inches(graphics card) or it wont even fit in my case, But I have been searching and found this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=14-130-... , Any higher performances then this one? but below 200?

How come the card has to be 7"? I google the computer and get a tower and the motherboard looks to be full 9.6" wide.

Its super small inside
The Back of the video card has to be super short, The Ram cards cause that problem, I wish I had 9 inches to fill with a graphics card, I would head towards six to be safe, Here is a Image

No you are looking at it wrong the card will not block the ram slots exactly like all other motherboards. The back of the PCB will face them with the cooler going up in the picture blocking the closest PCIe X1 slot! The ram slots are never in the way!

Ok then, But that leaves less then 2 inches of space left, I measured it and at 8 inches the graphics card won't even go pass the connecter on the image below at the top left corner, Also If the graphics card needs too slots(metal back pieces) It would as wide as where the second Pcie 4x connecter is at so you can see the graphics card will hit the connecter in the top left corner if it's longer then 8 inches

Looks to me it will pass the connector which is more in line with the 3rd slot.

Cables are flexible and can be bent or moved!
