    I recently ordered a new graphics card to replace my other one and I just got it today...but it doesn't fit. Here is the graphics card I got http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130572This is the one being replaced http://tinyurl.com/2522qo2 This is a picture of the inside of my computer. http://tinypic.com/r/hupx15/7 I made sure to ask my friend to help pick out my card which is way more tech savvy then me and even suggested the card themself. While I don't doubt it'll work..it just don't seem like it'll fit. Am I just doing it wrong? or do I have to go through the dreaded return process...?

    Looks like a double slot card and you only have room for a single slot card. If you bought it from NewEgg, their return policy is easy.
    Its not going to fit.

    You also need to make sure the power supply is going to handle the new video card if it's a more power-hungry model.
