Also, does it require a 6 pin connector from the power supply? GTS 450: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-GV-N450D3-1GI-NVIDIA-G... http://www.amazon.co.uk/Asus-GeForce-Graphics-PCI-Expre... Motherboard: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c02... Since my case is a Mini Tower, will it also fit because I'm not sure of the size of the GTS 450.

If your power supply doesn't have that, you could order a "2x4 pin to 6 pin" adapter like this: http://store.cableorganizer.com/2x-4-pin-molex-m-to-6-p... (dont know anything about this website, just reference the image) Third, yes it should fit in your case just fine.
