The case from the inside of the nose piece to the back wall is 15.78 inches.
The length of the 970 card is 9.50 inches.
Leaves 6.28 inches for the drive bays.

That took me 3 minutes on Google.

Thank you my friend, I have AMD R7 250X. Do I need do anything special because I switch from AMD to Nvidia or is it just plug and play?? (Sorry for noob question and bad English)

It's pretty much plug in play. I'm not sure about the power pins in the back.


You will want to get every AMD driver you can find on the machine off before you go in throw the Nvidia on.

Your current card is using a 6 pin power connector if i am not mistaken. And a 970 are using ether both a 6pin and an 8pin connector or 2x 6pin. So make sure you have that.

So will I have to order this as well as the new GPU ( http://www.amazon.co.uk/Startech-Exp...4V57VVMHRK9J4G ) Is this also just a simple plug and play?

That might and might not work. Ether way it's not recommended.
If the graphics card are made with a power design in mind that required 1x6pins and 1x8pins to function correctly, it's not vice to give it 2x6pins.
Give this article a read. GPU and CPU power connections - Overclock.net Community
If you don't want to read it all, go down "The GPU power connectors" section.
