Windows 7: Upgrading Graphics card.

Upgrading Graphics card.


I have had my Geforce GTX 760 for about a year now, and although it is a big improvement over my last graphics card, I want to upgrade it so games like OMSI Bus Simulator will run smoothly with no lag. I have already upgraded my power supply to a corsair 750. I am not wanting to pay more than 300 for one. Also my current card is a tight squeeze due to the length at 21.8cm. The card I have been looking at is 26.9cm in length. Is their a way round this? Any help would be appreciated.

I have seen this:

Here are my Specs:

Is their a way round this?
There are only two possibilities, as far as I know, find a shorter card or get a larger case.

Just about any 900 series card is a step up from a 700 series.

Look at EVGA`s line.

But the card you picked out is an awesome looking card and I`ve recommended it to many people, make it fit however you can, a torch or dynamite come in handy

The only down side to it I see is no back plate already on it, but no deal breaker.

You also need to add more memory to the system if possible, as it does help out with available gaming graphics memory, but this is purely based on your motherboard and how windows handles that extra memory.

Upgrading Graphics card.
I currently have a Nvidia GTX 275 but I'm looking to upgrade. I've narrowed it down to a GTX 560 Ti and a GTX 570 since I like to remain with Nvidia and the other cards from Nvidia cost a bit too much at this moment. However I'm unsure which of the two I should get. The 560 only costs 250...
