    As you can see in the picture in the above link, there are four different sizes. You don't mention the one you have.
  2. I would be careful with that swap. The 980 is kind of a unicorn. It's a BTX layout but not LGA775/771 which BTX came and went with. The 980 uses it's own cooling solution and I think the bolt pattern may be different. This is important on a Dell Optiplex because it bolts into the case directly, not to the MB or a backplate, or even removeable risers.. The classic BTX has the CPU turned 45* like the 780 does.
    A built Opti 780 would have a Q9650,16GB DDR3 1066 RAM, and a Zotac GTX1050Ti Mini. A bigger GPU will require modding and a PSU upgrade.
    If you need more than that I would suggest another computer. The Opti 780 was end of the line for Optiplex BTX layout.
