As far as I can tell, it is compatible in terms of the actual motherboard slot. What I'm more skeptical of is whether or not the case is big enough for it. My browser was being uncooperative so I couldn't tell how big the case was, and how much of the internal guts would be in the way. From what I could tell, it's a 6 year old model, and I don't recall GPUs being as big back then as they are today.

Based on the description of that computer, I would be completely surprised if you couldn't fit that card into that case.

The case is huge! I'd be surprised if it didn't fit...The thing also weighs a ton. Dell recommends it be a two-man lift. Almost broke my back taking it from my car...Haha. Is this a good GPU selection though? Why is it that the 560 barely even costs more? I don't get it. Another concern is some talk of it taking 2 6-pin connectors slots. I honestly don't even know how to tell if my PSU has that, or exactly what that even means. I built my own computer before, but that was several years ago. I'm assuming graphics cards installation is fairly simple though...

I kinda wonder if they have a newer model of the 690? I figured there's only one. Looks like mine...Let's hope. Haha
