I currently have got a nVidia 9800gt(Eco friendly one) and would like to go for something better.
I have an "HP Pavilion Elite HPE-112y"
However, I have some problems:
1. My case is not big at all. If you look at the picture of my current video card you could probably at half and inch of breathing room.
2. Power supply only 300 watts :/ 
3. <$300

I know there are many restriction, but i would something with at least a bit more power than this.
My display is 1600x900.
If nothing exist its fine I could wait a bit and save up for a power supply. Would that add more options then?

Thanks for reading this and thanks in advance for replies.
:)

id suggest saving up for a good power supply then waiting for a new graphics card to be released because there isnt anything worth buying to replace a 9800 gt for less than $300.
my advice is to get a better psu and wait for something new

Is that your PC?

Well, i never had an experiences with HP PC before, i don't know whether any graphic card will fit into your case or not...
For 300$, you can get a new quality PSU and HD5770...

Thank for the responses. That is exactly my PC.
I was also looking at the HD5770, unfortunately my 9800gt barely fits. :( 

Is there ANY work around to getting a graphics card to fit in a small case?

the 5770 is actually shorter than most 9800GTs...


Really?? Is it more powerful?
Well, I guess I can just then buy a new PSU and then an HD5770!!

Thank You for everything!!!
