Aurora R10, GPU replacement, dimensions?

Hi there people. I'd like to know what dimensions for a new video card will fit in this PC? The 5700XT was great, but I'd like to upgrade to a 6000 series card. What sized card can I cram in here safely? Or can I get a replacement video card from Dell directly? I can't seem to find an answer to these questions online. Maybe I just not good at Google lol.

Thank you so much for the help.

the lists states that the MSI RX 6800 XT is supposed to be compatible but judging from the specs of the MSI, its ~34cm long, that means that you would have to remove the front  intake fan of the R10 if you wanted to fit in that videcard.

At 340mm you would have to cut a hole in the chassis and the graphics card would be sticking out the front 25mm. You could not install the front shroud.

nVidia RTX 3070 Founders Edition will fit without any mods.

Get a ruler and measure your case.

That list shows the Dell OEM video cards, which fit. We cannot speak to non-OEM retail video card dimensions.

Re:the lists states that the MSI RX 6800 XT is supposed to be compatible

Chris is right.  MSI retail rx6800xt is different from MSI oem rx6800xt specifically made for Dell.

oh i see, but its not possible to buy it seperately, is it?

309

Yes you may buy oem gpu from Dell depending on their retail policy and stock availability or from third party such as eBay which sells either new, open box or barely used oem gpu.  Dell usually does not retail the top of line gpu until the next best gpu comes out.  if it is not top of line it is more likely possible to get from Dell.
