My pc specs---
I5 3470
Gigabyte GA-H61M-S2P
8 GB Ram 1333 MHZ
500 HDD
Cooler Master K380 Case

The question is:
Will the Gigabyte Radeon R9 270x fit in my case?
Can the Extreme Power Plus 500W PSU handle these components?

Thanks and sorry for my bad English.

That power supply only comes with one six-pin PCI-E cable. I know my 270x requires two 6 pin PCI-E power cables. So one answer to your question is no, that PSU won't work for that video card. Also, that PSU is crap.

:edit: That case will fit that video card though. It has support for nVidia 690's and Radeon 7990's, and those are beasts size wise for cards.

Well, the Aerocool can mount more fans. I'd honestly like to see a top mounted fan on either one, but they both provide basic cooling. I'd just stick with the case you have because it'll do well enough for you.
