Hello there.

I have an Inspiron 620 (Mini-Tower) and I'm wanting to upgrade the stock Radeon 6450 GFX card.

Will a nVidia GTX 770 or an EVGA GTX 770 4GB GDDR5 Classified with ACX Cooler fit inside the case and even be compatible with my current specs?

I have an i5-2320 and I'm upgrading my 4GB RAM to 8GB.

Here is a picture of the 620 inside from two separate sources:

and

I also want to add a Wireless Card: TP-Link TL-WDN4800 - Will this fit in with a GTX 770?

I will be upgrading my 300W PSU for a 600W Corsair PSU to accomodate the GFX update.

Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

It looks like it won't fit as is, but if you remove the hard drive tray you should be good to go. And the wireless card will be fine.

Okay great, yeah I was thinking of removing the HDD case and placing it underneath the optical drive tray? Or perhaps I could remove the HDD cage and put the harddrive in the empty slot below the optical drive?

Will I have enough space then? The card won't obstruct the cables plugged into the motherboard at the bottom right in both pictures?

Thanks!

You should be able to route the cables around the GPU as long as they are long enough. If there isn't enough slack on the cables you might need to find some longer cables though.

PCIe is backwards compatible so you'll be fine. Just move the wireless card a couple slots lower, so there is some clearance between it and the GPU.
