Hello

Im thinking of buying a Zotac 8800GT 512MB DDR3 Dual DVI HDTV Out PCI-E Graphics Card from ebuyer.com but i've read they are quite long. So before i was to buy would it fit in my HP Media Center M7635.uk PC? My current graphics card is ATI RADEON X1600 SE, with Avivo..

I've attached my PC's spec

Also will my Power supply be able to run it?

Many thanks

yes it will  - its a PCI-Express x16 card and according to the spec sheet you have 1 pci-express x16 slot available. you may have to enable the video card in the bios first and make sure you read the install instructions because some require the drivers installed before the card and others vice-versa

The GTZ and GTS versions need a 450w power supply for optimal performance:

your one looks to have 350w:
