My mother Micro Atx I want to buy a normal graphic to fit in my mohterboard but people say that I there won't be enough space even though when I open my case it's small but has a lot space available next to the graphic card slot I could even take picture to show you. Should i measure my space or something? My form factor is "form factor: microATX - 24.4 cm (9.6 inches) x 24.4 cm (9.6 inches)".
Someone please help me out i really really don't want to buy a low profile graphic card.
Yes, most standard size GPUs will fit into your available PCIe x16 slot. It isn't the size of the motherboard that matters. Rather, it is the space (some high end GPUs are quite long) available inside the case.
Yes I know but before I buy I will have a look at the measurement and quickly open my Pc case and measure to check if it fits and also I have 17 inch monitor non HD or 3D. I will be upgrading within maybe month to Full HD 3D montior but will this graphic card work with my current monitor since my monitor also allows only VGA connection.
Finally I measured my pc but I'm getting mixed up with which side is the diameter or which is the height of the certain graphic card so I just took some pictures of my Pc showing a how big it is. I hope you don't, I'm kind of a noob and the black slot is the PCI express x 16 slot.
Black ruler is the width of pc case and I have around 14 Cm space.
The normal ruler is the length which I have more than 30 Cm available.
I'm doing this because i don't want make mistake buying the wrong graphic card last week purchased a graphic but then I changed mind so I had to send paying extra £10 for postage by sending it back to them and load of hassle so don't want that to happen again and I could really appreciate your help.
