What is the form factor of your case? Is it like a slim computer or a regular size?

Regular size is on the right:

No, it should pair nicely with that processor, and you don't need a power supply upgrade either, because the card has a low power rating.

Actually, if I may, you might need to upgrade your power supply, as I just looked it was only rated at 220W. Sorry for the change of heart, but I had assumed it was higher rated. You may have issues with it there.

The 6570 (like a step below) should run in there much better, as it has a lower power threshold. My cousin had one and was playing Diablo 3 just fine on it.

I hope I caught you before you bought something, truly my bad for not looking more closely.

If you have already bought the card though, you might be able to do a few things, like underclocking the graphics card so that it uses less power.
