My PC case too small for GTX 560?

Im about to upgrade my GPU, Then I thought that my case might be too small, making heat a problem? Here's a pic of my case, I could also buy a fan and install it in the rear of the PC (top left in pic) The fan im thinkin about buying is this one: http://www.alternate.be/html/product/Behuizingen_Koelers/Noiseblocker/BlackSilent_Fan_X2/243971/?tn=HARDWARE&l1=Behuizingen&l2=Koelers

It's a Belgian website, I couldn't find it in newegg, sorry.

My case (with the new GPU installed):

Will the fan be sufficient? Probably a newb question, I just got into installing new parts/building PCs, and Im kinda lost.

  1. measure the case if you have 10 or more inches of space ur good.
  2. But the fan will be a must buy, right?
  3. Yes you must buy that fan, make sure it is only 80mm and not 120mm ! You also need an intake fan at the front if there is room for one, plus i advise you to clean all that dust out and put a dust filter on the front intake fan.

    Ok, I'll buy the suck-out fan. Sadly there is no room on the front for an intake fan, but there is a 80mm duct on the cover that I can remove. I can remove it and place a intake fan on it, would that work?
  5. Yes it will certainly help but dont forget to put an 80mm dust filter on it too something like this.
