Alright I looked and it seems the graphics card is 9.25 inches and the motherboard is 9.6 inches, is it ok if it barely fits like this?

The video card can be longer than the motherboard, if that is your concern. The only problem is if the video card touches the hard drive enclosure.

The motherboard has NOTHING to do with it. You need to know the distance from the back case bracket till you hit something over the pcie x16 slot. Harddrive cages or something else could stock out over the board. We could tell you if you'd tell us what case. Otherwise grab a ruler.and measure

We could give some decent estimates on the size of it. Depending on how the case has the hard drives oriented as well as whether its a standardized layout or not. I'm lazy and its much easier to just grab a ruler and do it yourself...

Have you upgraded the Psu there? cause the Oem is only a 250w nonamer
and if the card is smaller than the motherboard you will fit it into the case no problems
The Psu is my main concern though, what card have you bought?

Sorry for such a long respond, I was playing some games with friends.

I'm upgrading my PSU to 600w and the card I'm getting is a 7850, I got the one on sale and didn't see how big It was only had $200 to spend on a graphics card so I picked that up.

No problem then, I'd have been dismayed to read your next thread of how your low end Psu killed your new card :)
