Dimensions and Compatibility - Yay or nay?

Putting a system together. I have a little (very little) experience, but first time doing the whole thing from start to finish. Looking at the GTS 250 card, wondering if it's even going to fit, and also wondering if everything's compatible. Can anybody help? Here's the list so far:

TC3J-4030 P :: Power Up Black ATX Mid-Tower Case with 450-Watt Power Supply (11.55 lbs)

A455-2416 :: Asus M3A78 Motherboard - AMD 770, Socket AM2+, ATX, Audio, PCI Express 2.0, Gigabit LAN, S/PDIF, USB 2.0, Serial ATA, RAID (2.75 lbs)

CP1-AM2-9950B :: AMD Phenom X4 9950 Quad Core Processor HD995ZXAGHBOX - Black Edition, 2.60GHz, 4MB Cache, 2000MHz (4000 MT/s) FSB, Agena, Quad-Core, Retail, Socket AM2+, Processor with Fan (0.9 lbs)

C13-6082 :: Corsair Dual Channel TWINX 4096MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz Memory (2 x 2048MB) (0.2 lbs)

E145-0250 :: EVGA GeForce GTS 250 Video Card - 512MB GDDR3, PCI Express 2.0, (2) Dual Link DVI, SLI Ready

TSD-250AS8 :: Seagate ST3250318AS Barracuda 7200.12 Hard Drive - 250GB, 7200, 8MB, SATA-300 (1 lbs)

L49-GH22NP20 CA :: LG GH22NP20 22x Super Multi Black Dual Layer DVD+RW Writer (2 lbs)

I realize I'm skimping on the PSU, but will it work until I can afford a nicer one?

  1. Bad idea and a few pointers

    1. 9950 is on older gen Agena core - for gaming the X3 Hekas and X4 Deneb obliterates it! If budget is tight dun hesitate to go with a Phenom 2 720BE for a top class gaming rig!

    2. This mobo

    3. This PSU
  2. gts 250 is jus another nvidia rehash it started as the 8800gtx then rehash to 9800gtx+
  3. the 720 should be round the same price
  4. get the 4850 or 4770
