Default Will This Galaxy 9600GT Fit GX620 ?..

Hey, just wondering if this Video card will fit in my Dell GX620.. At the moment it only has a GeForce 8400GS which sucks to be fair. The gap between the Hard Drive dock thing and the 8400GS atm is very close.. as you can see in the photo

Heres the Galaxy 9600GT, btw i just used newegg as an example because they have the best pics there: Newegg.com - Galaxy 96GFF6VIFCXX GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Supported Low Profile Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Thats how much space is left with the 8400GS in:

The cooler on the card will face toward the PCI slot. Nothing sticks up from the other side. It should be fine.

You'll be fine. If the cooler will be facing the bottom (Not sure which side is the front, but if the hard drive is closer to the front, you'll be fine) you should look into Sparkle's Slim 9800GT, it's cheaper than the 9600GT, and much faster. It's dual slot cooler, so it would need to be facing down, and taking the extra PCI slot away.
