Hey everyone, I have an inspiron 560 with a 500 watt power supply that i just upgraded.. i wanted to upgrade my graphics card to a EVGA GeForce GTX 650 but it won't fit!! It fits in the mb slot but there is not enough room in the case..also when i try to push the card all the way into the slot it is stopped by something in the back, i think it's called a capacitor? idk what it is but it doesn't go down into the slot on the opposite side of the part that holds the card into place. Anyways i'm pretty frustrated and i just want to know what are some sure fit cards that WILL fit for sure into my computer. My budget is about $110.. Also i have not don upgrading te anyo my my comp at all except upgrading the power supply to a 500 watt.
This is one card that i read about that fit into a 560 but not entirely sure..http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
That's all thanks.

The 650's are among the smallest cards available, if it didn't fit I don't think anything else will.




You said it was hitting something on the motherboard, if so, then yeah I don't see anything else fitting.

This it?

If the plastic shroud on the GPU was hitting the stuff right underneath the PCIE slot...


Maybe something like this?

Yea I think something like Max linked would work there isn't really a shroud or something. And if you ran into wires or something you could always buy extension wires. Also it looks like there is a unlock handle for the slot so you may want to make sure that it is open it might have been locked.

Ok, i moved the mother board back a little bit so that the card would fit as far as space goes. But it still will not go all the way down into the slot. It is not getting stuck on the unlock handle so idk what it is...Also do you guys know if this will fit? Radeon HD 6770 because that's the one i want..Thank you guys for the help.
