Which size "Dell OptiPlex 780"? It comes in "Mini-Tower", "Desktop", "Small Form Factor" and "Ultra Small Form Factor".



If you have one of the smaller cases, make sure the physical size of the video card, (width, height and depth), is going to fit.

i have the larger case. my concern was that i went to the intel website about the q45 express w/ ich10 and there was a section that said that chipset did not support hdmi

It's a limitation of the onboard video (which is into the chipset) and the back connectors (seems you have only VGA there). If you put in a video card with its own HDMI out, the chipset has nothing to say about that anymore ;)
