[Graphics Card]GPUs for my Small Form Factor PC

Hello guys,I hope you can help me with figuring out which gpus I should get for my SFF PC.
My PC model is an Acer Aspire X3990(http://www.amazon.co.uk/Acer-Desktop-i3-2120-Windows-Premium/dp/B007RMRD9A)All the specs are in the link.My current GPU is a Intel HD Graphics 2000 and I would like to upgrade to a different one.My PSU is 220W so I doubt theres a lot of good ones for me.I have check the insides of my PC and there is a PCI-e slot on the motherboard near the top of the pc(the motherboard is vertical).Im also facing another problem,even if i have the right gpu,i have no idea where to put the brackets as there is no hole,only a metal thing that is slightly welded to the rest of the pc.Please help me :)

  1. Since you know a little bit about your computer can you answer a few things for me.

    Is your Power Supply a regular size form factor PSU or is it a special form factor.

    Also

    Are your expansion slots low profile.

    Im not sure abt your questions,but does this picture help?(I took it myself :))http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/4193/img20121230091319.jpg
  3. lol yea i messed up to post a picture you need to use I goofed up I'll take a look at the picture.
  4. Hmm, based on where your optical drive is it almost looks like you couldn't upgrade your graphics if you wanted to. The picture is a little high for me to see the full length of the power supply.

    sorry if its blur(retarded camera)
  7. It looks like you have enough room for a regular psu. but if you look at your cd drive you will see it rests right over what would be expansion slots. I don't think you can upgrade your gpu in this case.
