I understand this is a long card that takes two slots. I plan to upgrade PSU to 600w but am still video card shopping. I am between XFX HD 5770 PCIE 2.0 and XFX HD 5830 PCIE 2.0
I will receive the computer tomorrow so I will be able to open and see real space availability. I would like to order the card today if someone has this information.

I don't think the 5830 will fit unless you're able to remove the HD cage. Its pretty much an incredibility gimped 5870 in performance but still has its body size.
Edit: You won't have any issues fitting the 5770 but if I may, I suggest you also look at Nvidia's offering in that price range. The GTX 460 will generally perform quite a bit better with a slight price increase. Depending on your monitor resolution you could go for the 768MB or the 1GB version. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E...
If you're keen on getting the XFX ATI cards then that is fine too. Lifetime warranty is always great.
