I have a Dell Inspiron 580 (i580-6654NBC) core i3 550
I want to upgrade the graphics card that I already have to a evga gtx 780 6gb that I found for a great price
Problem is I don't know if it's compatible or if it will even fit in the case
Thanks for reading!

Here's the specs for that card - https://www.evga.com/Products/Specs/GPU.aspx?pn=3B81D7E2-830D-43CC-8FEE-D15F2AB43767


It should be compatible in that given enough power, and space to fit the card, it should work in the motherboard.  You can check whether it will fit in the case by measuring from the expansion slot blanking plate backwards and checking whether there are any obstructions in that zone.  It's a dual slot card and is 10.5" long.  Most of these systems seem to be fitted with low end graphics cards..


It requires a high spec power supply (600w recommended)  with a PCIe 8 pin and 6 pin plug.  These PC's were supplied with a 300w PSU, I believe, so that will definitely need changing.
