Default PSU fitting issues

I am looking to upgrade my power supply for a graphics card I'm getting. The graphics card looks like it will fit and will work with the PSU but I'm not sure of how the dimensions work for the PSU. I've looked it up on google and didn't find any help. I know how to measure height and width but does depth mean the distance from the top of the tower to the bottom or from the back of the tower to the front or from side to side (if you are looking at the computer from the front, disk tray facing your chest)? Thanks!

Its front to back. As in the thickness of the case.

I don't think I understand what you are saying. Front to back would be the length of the case right? Thickness I thought was side to side (aka width).

Yha... I think front to back, while looking at the side where you put stuff in, which AS you said is side to side...
