Issue with a gfx card
Okay, so currently in my Hewlett-Packard H8-1230, I replaced the power supply and the graphics card. The Power Supply is Antec 650w I believe, and the graphics card is an Nvidia Geforce GTX 560 which is a length of 8.25 inches according to the Nvidia website. Now, I am upgrading the video card again, and also upgrading my sound card to a SoundBlaster Audigy card. Here is my issue: When I first purchased the GTX 560, I went to install it into the motherboard, and it took me almost 2 hours to install both the PSU and the graphics card because I could NOT fit the graphics card into the opening provided between the PSU and the case. I've been looking at all the new graphics cards, and they are all 9 inches and larger. If I could barely fit an 8.25 inch graphics card into the PC now, there's probably no way to fit anything larger. I will supply a link to my PC which was purchased off Newegg, and I will provide the dimensions of the case as a whole. Maybe somebody here can help me, or maybe give me a reason why they would compact this so tightly? It's a Mid-Size Tower, which is honestly what most PC's come in nowadays, so maybe I'm missing something. It's roughly 16.5" x 16.5" by 5"
