I have an old Alienware x51 RT2, as you know the case is not that big and not every graphics card can fit into.

Maximum Graphics Card Dimensions for the case:

Height: 4.736 inches
Length: 9.5 inches
Width: Dual Slot

So, I want to upgrade my GTX 760

8GB RAM
i7-4770 CPU @ 3.40GHz
Power Supply: 330 watts

I don't know what the best card you can get in there but I put a GTX970 in mine over a year ago and have had no issues. It's an old card now but would still be an upgrade and found for cheap. Whatever you choose it has to be a blower style card.

There's some pretty small 1060s that should fit no problem. Add another 8gb of RAM too.

It seems some versions of 1060 can fit.

Thanks all for your replies.

looks like that small form-factor 1060 will be very loud under load tho
