I have an ET1331g-03w (pretty sure about the -03w part)

2.8 mhz dual athlon
500 gb hd
6 gb ram
6150 se graphics card

Im trying to add the best new graphics card i can without bottlenecking the cpu..
I've come to the conclusion that the best choice would be the Geforce Gtx 460 or the Asus radeon hd 6770
I also fear that these cards (8.25'' long) might not even fit ?
Obviously i need a new power supply (if the card could even fit) but I'm having trouble finding one with a fan that is aimed in the right direction. Most power supplies have a fan that blows upwards and this won't work since in my box it would be blowing directly into a metal plate.

another note: I need an ATX power supply (standard size)

heres an example of a power supply that WONT work because of the fan location -- Any Corsair wont work.

an example of one that looks correct and would probably work is --- hec X-Power Pro 600 600W Continuous @ 40°C ATX12V V2.2 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... but as you can see it is out of stock..

Any suggestions about my graphics card choices (will 8.25'' even fit?) or psu suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I am starting to get pretty annoyed with finding stuff that will work.

the whole point of all these upgrades is to play Diablo 3 (btw)

Well, to see if it would fit. Get a ruler, and open up the side of your case.

I've already done this and it doesn't tell me much because the graphics card isnt in my hand and i dont know how wide it would be (dual slot width). I even have pics of a ruler in my pc case if u want to see urself.. looks like it would be a pretty tight fit to me. So in summary measuring solved nothing, but i do THINK it might fit.

Btw lengthwise there are no obstructions until 8.5'' , and the card is 8.25'' so thats a pretty TIGHT fit... 1/4 inch to spare? lol.. but widthwise i dono ... there might be stuff in the way might not.. in search of people who know, and who can also recommend a power supply like the one i posted


Anyone know if this power supply would work with this gsu cus im about to chance it
