Default Questions on upgrading my Comp

Hey guys whats up ?

I will be upgrading my computer graphics wise very soon and i have a few questions that need to be answered so i just went out and found this forum and i hope you can answer my troubles. I own an HP Pavilion Elite m9252p, here are the current specs:

GeForce 8500GT 512mb
350w supply
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700 @ 2.66 Ghz
Vista 64-bit
4GB RAM

I want to upgrade my computer to a 750w or 850w supply and a GeForce 9800 GX2. However i do not want to buy a whole new case, now my question is:

Do you think that i can fit a 9800 GX2 and a 750w or 850w supply into this computer (picture below, if you want me to take better pics, let me know) and what can i buy to prevent the heat coming from the 9800 ? Thank You

I don't think you will be able to fit a 9800gx2 in there and even if you can cooling could be a problem.

Could you take a pic were you can see the whole interior of the case?

Is there a particular reason you don't want to buy a new case? A antec 300 is only $55 and would give you allot more space, significantly better cooling, and would allow you to fit those parts without a problem.
