Hello, My friend is thinking about upgrading his graphics card to a GTX 760 which is the one I currently have and he asked me if it would be compatible with his setup. I know a bit about this sorta stuff but would like to make sure I am giving him the correct answers.

This is his computer: http://support.hp.com/nz-en/document/c03789895

I know he needs a new power supply so I suggested the one I have http://www.fsplifestyle.com/product.php?LID=1&PSN=382. I took a look at his motherboard and I think that it is compatible but if someone could confirm this then it would be much appreciated. Probably the biggest question is would it fit in the case. At the moment he is unable to get any photographs of the inside of his case but the case size is listed on the website provided above so if anyone could make a decent guess as to whether they think it would fit or not then that would be great. Thank you in advance.

Well the HD 8570 that's in that PC is a PCIe 3.0 video card, so the GTX 760 would definitely be compatible (why a GTX 760 though?).

Taking the length of the case and then detracting the bay size, you will have 10.1" of room, so a video card of ~9.5" in length would be fine.

This was exactly the answer I was looking for and thank you for such an incredibly quick reply. The reason why its a 760 is because I currently have a 760 and I am planning on upgrading to a 980 Ti so he asked if he could buy it for his computer. Thanks again for the help :D
