Question will my giant ass graphics card fit in this case?

I assume this is the card you have based on your description:
https://www.asus.com/Graphics-Cards/DUAL-GTX1060-O3G/
That card is about the same length as an ATX motherboard.  The card fitting shouldn't be an issue.  If you look at the pictures of the case, the 2.5" hard drive bays are in front of where the graphics card would go so that there is extra room for a longer card.

Does your power supply have the right plug for the graphics card?  The card looks like it uses the standard 6 pin plug.

I don't know where you are located, but Microcenter often has good deals on processor and motherboard combos.  They also sometimes have a discount deal where if you buy a motherboard, processor, SSD, and RAM where you get additional discounts.  You have to pick up in store for the bigger discounts.  Including sales tax, I priced together a similar system at Microcenter for $418.65

Fry's also has discounts on components, however I only have 1 location within 3 hours of me and I've never been there.

For $400-$500 I'd go with something similar to this for $443:
https://pcpartpicker.com/list/K6G3NN

That leaves you money for an OS(linked above) and shipping.  You would reuse your current power supply.  You could drop the price by $75 by not getting the SSD and reusing your current hard drive.  That would being the price down to about $368.  Either way you would have to install Windows.  If you get the SSD, you can use your current hard drive for storage and just put the OS and frequently used games and programs on the SSD.

i have been looking at much the same thing or similar.  Thanks for linking this.

need your budget

1. your cpu is shit, i5 is good
2. you might be able to use your hard drive, os installs are tied to the motherboard os is about 100$ fyi

i was hoping my budget would end with the purchase of my graphics card.  i could afford another 300-500 bucks without jeapordizing christmas for the rest of the family

ok so i waited around and bought a asus geforce gtx 1060 oc edition 3 gb, plug it into my hp and choke.  after many long hours on support with hp and geforce both, it is decided that my card and computer are not compatible?  and hp does not support that model desktop any more due to age.  wtf

anyhow...

now i am looking into a new build.  Probably gonna frankenstein as much as i can from my old computers.

here is a list of what i have available

amd 6100 6 core processor 3300 mhz - from my main hp rig - (also have a amd phenom 9650 quad core 2.30 ghz from my back up rig)
2 sticks of 3 gb ddr3 ram - (yes i know i need more and will probably do so)
geforce gtx 1060 oc edition 3 gb
650 watt power supply
i have all the peripherals ie.  two monitors, keyboard, mouse.

i guess my main question is can i get away with just buying a case and motherboard.  or is my old processor such shit now that there is no use in keeping it and move up to an i5 or i7 although i7 is more than i want to spend.

also my hard drive has windows 7 64 bit i would love to keep without having to buy another hard drive and windows again.


thanks in advance, all help is appreciated
