Hi,
Looks like the card will fit
Also looks like you need a serious cleaning out too

You don`t have to worry about having enough room with either card you picked out, they are very small.

I would also go with the 2 GB card with the fan.

It doesn`t matter where you live, you could live at the South Pole, unless the room is freezing cold, your video card gets hot.

"Looks like the card will fit"? I thought you were fully confident and won't say the phrase "looks like" . I was asking all this just because I could get my card home delivered from Amazon and install it myself. Hehehe...

What useful information did cpuz screenshots gave to you? 4gb graphics card without fan vs. 2gb card with fan?. I also want to learn.

The card WILL fit

The card uses a PCI-Express slot and your motherboard has 1 PCI-Express slot. You are good.

But you need to clean that PC before you add anything more to it.

Take the motherboard out, take that case to the car wash, rent a power washer, do something

LOL

Okay, I'm happy to announce you all that I've placed order for my graphics card. It will arrive tomorrow. 4gb graphics card without fan vs. 2gb card with fan? 4gb graphics card without fan vs. 2gb card with fan?. Thanks a ton everyone for your kind, helpful and highly responsive support.

I noticed in the image of my graphics card that I ordered. It has a small cable to power its fan I suppose. Where would I attach it? Can anyone circle it within the photographs of my CPU that I sent?

The fan is connected to the card, the card is powered by the pci-e slot, you don`t have to do anything more then install it, hook your monitor to it, then download the nvidia drivers for it.

Hi,
The cable is for the vga port
It's a low profile card so it can be split to take up 2 slots on the back of the computer on a mini computer case
Yours is not a mini case so it will only take up a single slot on the back of the computer.
