Looking for an Upgrade

Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE Vapor-X 100358VXL Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Will my PC be able to handle this? If I upgrade the PSU

yes, but you need an adeguate PSU.

Sapphire wants a 400W PSU minimum for that card:

SAPPHIRE VAPOR-X HD 7770 GHz EDITION OC 1GB GDDR5#

Your p6270z has a 300W PSU. I'm not sure that 400SW is really necessary, but the discrete graphics cards offered as options with that model are low-powered ones.

It looks like the p6270z doesn't require low profile cards, so you're good there. It's not clear that the case would take a long graphics card. The card that you list is less than 9" (23cm) long, which I hope isn't a problem.

So, what would you recommend that would be a guaranteed fit? I don't wanna get it and have it not fit.

So, go for it

The HD 7770 is a good mid-end GPU
