[HELP] Upgrade Computer

Hey everyone! Recently i bought a new computer, but the graphics card, power supply, and case have been dripping on me.. I've found everything i need, but i need help to find out if they fit.

[Buying] Graphics card = http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130768&name=Desktop-Graphics-Cards


[Buying] Power Supply = http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139010


[Buying] Case = http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146067


Original Computer...
2 x USB 3.0 ports, 6 x USB 2.0 ports, 3 x analog ports, 1 x DVI-D port, 1 x HDMI port, 1 x VGA port, 1 x S/PDIF port, 1 x PS/2 port
2 x PCIe slots, 1 x PCI Express (x16) slot, 2 x external 5.25" bays, 1 x external 3.5" bay, 4 x internal 3.5" bays

The graphics card I'd like to buy, is a PCIe 3.0, and i have 2.0. Will it still work? Or is there another graphics card, like the same with 2.0.
--------
The power supply looks good to me, unless everything will work with a lower power supply. (Currently 250W) <--- Sucks
--------
The case, i need to know if everything will fit.
( Motherboard: Micro ATX Form Factor; 24.4cm x 24.4cm )
==============================================


I don't know much about building or putting together computers, if someone could give me tips and tricks, would be great.
If you need more information, like pictures just ask. I have a max of $800 i can spend, or less would be great.

  1. I just stumbled upon this. Anyway, It should all fit nicely, considering the size of the case your getting, and the specs are just right.
  2. That gpu will work, just at 2.0 speeds (which doesn't make a difference with a single gpu). But, i'm going to recommend you get a gtx 670 instead, because they deliver 90% of the performance of a 680 for a lot cheaper.

    Here's one of the best 670's. Has twice the vram (4gb=more futureproof), and is cheaper:

    Here's a standard 670.

    If you eventually get into overclocking, you can even surpass stock 680 performance with these.

    For the psu, it's a great one. But you can get away with a 650w.

    Hope I helped a bit. :)

    Thank you! I don't know anything about overclocking, but I'll look into it. And what do you mean 2.0 speeds? Will it be slower?

    Found another psu, work?

    Just a little. Overclock it and you'll get faster speeds.

    Hi - The HX650 at ncix is a gr8 price - go for it.

    Don't worry about 2.0 vs 3.0 PCI-E speeds - you can rum 2.0 on a 3.0 slot.
    The card is the determining factor for you.
