Hey man, im here to rescue you :D Well according to sources the maximum length of a GPU that tower can handle comfortably 304mm. Considering most components are made with Width in consideration the R9 290 you want has dimensions of 292.1mmx111.2mmx38mm. So you will have 11mm spare or 1cm, it will just fit. You should not have any problems.

Aslo just make sure your PSU has a 6 pin and 8 pin Power cables. Apparently you need a 750W PSU (according to the site) and GD. So im not sure if your psu can handle this. Also i believe this GPU is PCI Express 3, where your motherboard only supports PCI Express 2. Im not sure if this will make a difference as there is allot of controversy about the topic.

As far as PCI 3.0, it won't bother you alot, just a performance drop maybe!
