It would also help if you added your motherboard to your specs.
Sorry, I don't know the name of the motherboard, and can't seem to find anything online. The 9.5in length of the Ti Boost is a difficult issue, as there does not appear to be much room in the case. I'll measure the available space inside tomorrow.


Also, EVGA is out of stock for the Ti Boost 2GB Superclocked.

EDIT: I checked the EVGA shipping price, and it came up as $47.76...

The stock clocked version will serve you just fine.

Are you sure that shipping quote is correct ?

You could also use Tigerdirect.com

Here is a great price for the Corsair HX850

HX Series HX850 Power Supply ? 850 Watt 80 PLUS® Gold Certified Modular PSU (Refurbished) - HX Series - Power Supply Units

Although it says Refurbished, I doubt there`s anything wrong with it, Corsair gives a 7 year warranty.

The shipping quote was correct, $47.76 for UPS Worldwide ground expedited to Canada, BC...
That HX850 PSU looks great, but I'm not sure if I have room for the 7.8in length in my case.

The TigerDirect suggestion would actually cost approximately the same amount, since the $21 in tax and $3 shipping fee for the NewEgg offer accounts for the ~$25 higher price anyways.

Well, I measured the case in my space, and it appears that the card and PSU will fit in length, but I have some doubts. Namely, whether the card will fit in width, since it is a double slot card, and there are obstructions beside the slot. Also, the extra 2cm for the PSU might be a very tight fit in beside the drives.

I've attached a photo of what the interior looks like, with measuring tape for reference. I'll upload another picture with the PSU space later, as well.

Nevermind the obstructions , the one on the upper right is just a wifi adapter, which I can remove, and the metal ridges appear to be level with the slots.

Looks like it's all clear for both items, thanks for your help, guys.

Since you are in Canada, look at NCIX for parts.

The PSU should fit fine, a new one is likely about 7mm longer than your current one. Is the 2nd pic upside down? I can't see a PCIe X16 slot.

There's Newegg in Canada too, Amazon too.

Sorry, the second picture is the power supply (the upper portion of my case), and the first one is the space available along the GPU slot. You can't see the PCIe X16 slot, because my card is still in it. The card I'm planning on buying has a length of 9.5'', and the power supply has a length of 16cm, which I've marked in red in each respective image.

Thanks for all of the help, everyone, I've put the order through for the EVGA 650ti Boost 2GB Superclocked and the Seasonic M12II 620W. The total was $285.61 CAD with tax and shipping fees, so I figure I didn't do too badly.
