If you want the GPU to be cheaper i got one for you and is smaller so 100% will fit in your case and it doesn't use any extended power at all. However, it require more than 300W so i pick 500W power supply just to make sure your PC doesn't crash due to not enough power.

 

EVGA GTX 750TI  - $120

Yeah, wasn't paying attention to the serial number. Sorry about that.

Also, the EVGA GTX 750TI dimension is 6.70" x 4.38", so it should fit in your case no matter what.

You can take it to BestBuy geeksquad and have them install it for you and the power supply or you can watch this video how to install a graphics card.

Ya welcome, while BestBuy might charge you between $60 - $80 for installation and some people prefer do it by themself which is super easy, but if you are new to  PC upgrade just take it to the computer store and let them do it for you it's better than breaking your own system that cost more than repair.

Geek squad? Are you trying to get this guy ripped off? I have read so many geek squad horror stories, including that a poll found 56% of geek squad employees find no reason to use grounding straps. :smash:
