I'm looking to upgrade to a more powerful graphics card.
However I'm not sure what my case and motherboard can fit!
Could I please be advised with how to identify which cards will fit and work?

In the case of a small case, you might also want to compare the dimensions of the available space:
You can then compare these specifications to the size listed in the technical specification of the card.
