Hi,Actually I have a dell optiplex 990,equiped with an i7.I just bought a GTX580,but unfortunately it does not fit in the mini-tower ! The scale of the graphic card is just to big to fit in the case.Can someone please advise a proper case for the gpu to fit in? As i think the motherboard won't fit in a standard ATX case?

 

as long as the case has the pattern for what called itx mother boards it should fit in a standard case.the problem with pre built pc is the mb made to stock itx or atx for factor so that the rear ports line up on standard case,

Will it fit in a gaming case or something? Can someone give me a specific model of a good casing? Preferably something with a nice airflow,and sufficient space for a large powersupply.?
 
if you looking for a good gaming case there are a few nice one that are shown on toms hardware front page. the gaming case i have (50.00) new egg is the antec one gaming case. good cases now have the ps on the bottom and fans or vents on top or side.
