I have a Gigabyte B360 HD3 motherboard. I'm debating whether to upgrade my graphics card to a 2080 Ti founders edition whose dimensions are 267 x 116 x 35. Based on some rough eyeballing, I'm not sure this card would even fit on my motherboard. I'm wondering if there's anyone else out there with this mobo or who knows from experience whether this card will even fit? Thanks so much for the assistance.

What case and PSU do you have? These are the two limiting factors that you should be looking at.

Your motherboard should have no issues with that card.

You will may need a bigger PSU. A 2080 Ti will pull 300W alone (without any overclocking). So the rest of your computer will realistically need to draw 300W or less (as you don't want to max out the power supply). Depending on CPU, motherboard, RAM, and hard drives, you can be looking at anywhere from 80-150W for the CPU (without overclocking), and add 3-4W per 8GB of RAM, and anywhere from 20-100W for the motherboard. Any other add-on cards, and hard drives will also use power, so it will be pretty tight.

Best bet is to try it out and run a 4-8 hour benchmark using the GPU+CPU and see if it is stable. If it isn't, it is probably due to your PSU.
