Hi.
I was thinking if the new GeForce 580 GTX could be installed on my PC

My specs are as follows:
PC: Dell Optiplex 760 (Mini Tower)
Slot: PCIe full height
Mainboard : Dell 0M858N
Chipset : Intel Q43
Processor : Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 @ 3000MHz
Physical Memory : 4096MB (2 x 2048 DDR2-SDRAM )
Video Card : NVIDIA GeForce GT 220
Hard Disk : Western Digital WD3200AAKS-75L9A0 (320GB)
Operating System : Microsoft Windows XP Professional 5.01.2600 Service Pack 3 (32-bit)
DirectX : Version 9.0c (May 2010)
Monitor Type : Dell Computer DELL E2210 - 22 inches
RAM: 3.0 GB

Also my current graphics card is:
Width : 470 mm
Height : 293 mm

When I tried to fit a Radeon 5770 into my PC, it was too big. So im not sure how big this one is or if it'll fit in my PC.

Thank you in advance for any help :) .

The 580 is bigger than the 5770, and not only that, but your CPU and chipset might be a bottleneck for the card. You're also running Windows XP, which cannot take advantage of DirectX 11.

I would save the money and possibly look into building/buying a new rig.

If a 5770 was too big there is no way you will stuff a 580 in there, you will need a bigger case, but from the looks of it, a complete upgrade rather than a 580 will likely do you better especially in the long run.
