It has a
i7 3770 cpu
I want to upgrade the graphics card, so I need to know what will be suitable for the machine. The length cannot go above 9.5 inches.
Any help is appreciated.
The Zotac MINI GTX 1050TI would be a good fit . Its slightly better than a GTX 680.

Thanks for the reply. I have a gtx 660, and not a 680
Point being that a GTX680 is better and faster than a GTX660 so the 4 GIG GTX 1050TI will be an upgrade to Pascal Video and will fit and will work.
Get the GTX 1060 Founder Edition or any 1060 with reference type of fan, is powerful and just plug and play. You could even get the GTX 1070 and some users had reported that the 1080 works too, but you need to modify the case and remove the front fan including changing the powerboard to the R2 one (only if you have the R1 X51). The 1050ti it´s not bad but if you are going to upgrade save a little more and get the 1070 Founder Edition, the 1080 is too expensive.
I got the 1050Ti and it works wonderfully. Thanks for your help. Much appreciated.
the 1070 is a nice upgrade I have a X51 R3 and was great improvement over the 970 gtx it originally had, but like mentioned requires a bit of modding and removal of front fan, temp difference is nil but I also don't have mechanical hdd anymore just ssd 's
