The two images above show what space I have in my PC, now I know it looks like there should be enough room but I would like the communities opinion. I am also replacing the power supply though I hope that fits too.

My current pc specs:

Gateway DX4860-UR2OP
Intel Core i3-2100 3.1 GHZ
Intel HD 2000 Graphics
6 GB Ram

Thanks for the help.

Links are broken.

The XFX 6850 is 8" long. Measure the inside from the back of the case to your HDD racks or however your case is setup

Should fit. If anything the video card will be close to hitting the RAM whatchamacallits (lol sorry). Like I said, just to be sure, since you have the side panel off, measure. You need 8 inches of clearance.

Also, try to route those cables somehow and blow out that dust. A clean case is a happy case.

Yea I measured everything and it should fit fine, when I put in my new power supply I'm going to clean up the dust and cables. This is the first time I'm upgrading so I just want to make sure everything is golden.

XFX AMD Radeon HD 6850 cards:

Models with one 6-pin PCIe power connector:
Card Dimension: 9.25"L x 4.4"H x 1.5"W (23.5cm x 11.12cm x 3.81cm)
HD-685X-ZDFC
HD-685X-ZNFC
HD-685X-ZDBC
HD-685X-ZNBC
HD-685X-ZDDC
HD-685X-ZNDC

Models with two 6-pin PCIe power connectors:
HD-685A-ZCFC Card Dimension: 7.80"L x 4.4"H x 1.5"W (19.8cm x 11.12cm x 3.81cm)
HD-685X-ZCF6 Card Dimension: 8.66"L x 4.4"H x 1.5"W (22cm x 11.12cm x 3.81cm)
HD-685X-ZCFC Card Dimension: 8.66"L x 4.4"H x 1.5"W (22cm x 11.12cm x 3.81cm)

All of these models will have no problem fitting into the Gateway DX4860-UR20P's case.

The XFX Core Edition PRO550W (P1-550S-XXB9) power supply would be a good match for that card and should be exactly the same dimensions as your current 300W OEM power supply.

I was thinking about this corsair

So what I get is that any of those models you listed will work with my rig.

Just keep in mind that the builders series from corsair is not seasonic based so you may not get the same quality from your corsair power supply as you would from a (TX,HX,or AX) series power supply.

Okay guys thanks for the help, I'll probably go with the XFX Core PSU seems to be the safer bet.

Yeah..
he must remove the graphic card if he wants to add more or remove his memory.. :D 

sometimes it will be troublesome.. :whistle: 

But actually, there will be no problem..

Your rig will fit with the 6850.. :)
