Also it would be worth checking whether the CPU will bottleneck a high end card or not. I'm not sure of the performance of the 3330 but I'll look into it.

Size has been what we have been looking at as when we tried to install the Radeon HD 7870 we had no end of problems as it was a tad large, we ended cutting out some of the internal casing to make it fit.
The EVGAGTX 970 SSC that he was wanting to fit is a similar size to what he has installed at the moment and we have 1.75cm's to play with still.
As for the CPU that's when we need the help of you guys as I can honestly say I don't have a clue, If it helps I can post the Tag/Service code for Dell so that you can see all the specs etc of the PC?

Hi,
Yes please also measure the case as well
Height/ width/ depth

Anything for gaming usually it's worth looking into liquid cooling options which Corsair has some very nice plug and play cpu cooler systems
Best of all they take up very little room but do need one case fan position
Corsair website is out for me but here's a inexpensive one here,
CORSAIR Hydro Series H75 CW-9060015-WW Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 120 MM - Newegg.com

I thought that i should update you with my sons card update.We fitted a Geforce GTX 970 4 GB card in the end, kept the same PSU. Poppedstraight in with no issues with the size. Card didnít plug & play straightaway. Had a few issues but nothing major.
Basically card was found in devicemanager but not working, disabled onboard graph card but that didnít help.
TookGTX card out to get onboard card working again, replaced GTX card for thesecond time and it decided to work.
Has been running for a week now with no problems at all.

One happy son and just want to say thank you to all thathelped.

We did, It didn't find one, infact it couldn't help us at all...
Think we downloaded from EVGA in the end.

Video card vs graphic card?
Are these the same thing? I have an old Dell (as you can see), but I like it. I was told that I could improve its performance by adding a video card. When I look them up, I see pictures of odd-looking devices that in no way resemble a "card." I can only find 2 that will work with this computer....
