I have a hp pavilion elite hpe case and i got a nvidia geforce gt 440 and i want to upgrade to at least a 550ti but i dont know if it will fit.
The 440 specs are:
Bus Support PCI-E 2.0 x 16
Height 4.376 inches
Length 5.7 inches
Width Dual-slot

My pc specs (if needed)
i5 2500 @ 3.3ghz
440 GT
1TB HDD
6GB RAM
win. 7 64bit
Pegatron 2ab6 sandybridge motherboard with PCI-Express
300W PSU ( yes i know i might need to upgrade)

Sorry if this isnt the right place to ask this.Thanks.

The card will fit but that all depends on your case.
Do you have much room or have any other cards in the other slots?
I wouldnt suggest going with a 550ti , they are'nt that great, you rae better off getting a 560 or a 6850/6870.
Also yes you will definately have to purchase a better psu for one of these cards.

No i only have a gt 440 no others and these are rough measurements:
7 inches wide by 15.9 inches high by 16.5 inches deep and the 550 is 2x bigger so i dont see how it would fit..

A 560 is about 11.5 inches long, I assume you mean you have 15.9 inches length?

You always go for a low profile card , they are usually smaller , but 15.9 inches is plenty of length.
Guess its hard for me to tell you exactly without being there to see it for myself :(

I'll take a picture and show you but i doubt it will fit. that is a massive card compared to mine right now.

A 550ti is only 8.25 inches , so which might be a good fit.

My bad was looking at the 560ti length, sorry about that.

A 550ti/560 will fit in there for sure as they are just over 8 inches.

Grab a tape measure and see just to be 100%

It will fit , if you can try and get a 560 or 6870 at least , it will be better than a 550ti.
