they aren't compatible, (look to muffins response) and you're greatly overpaying and getting a sorely underpowered system. the gpu is vastly outdated at this point, and the cpu you can do much better.

and as an IT guy you should know about hardware

no, they won't work. that's a small form factor (sff) desktop, so it's most likely limited to low-profile cards only and sff power supplies.

that gfx card is a full height card and the psu is standard atx size, neither of which will fit in there.

and looking at its specs on emachines's site, it's not entirely clear if it even has a pci-e x16 slot for a gfx card.

i'm with peter though, i say build one yourself if you're up for it.

hah, i noobed it up pretty hard there, yeah muffins got it right, the gpu and psu are too large for that case, and if you're going to get a new case too you're looking at basically building a new pc anyway, so you should just do that..

and the mobo does have a pci-e slot. not that putting a card in it would make it worthwhile...
