So, I might get the Alienware x51, but I need to know if the i7-4790 and GTX 760 fit in a SSF (Small Form Factor) PC?. It is console size.

The CPU will, but you would have to carefully choose the CPU cooler (stock one is too noisy).

The GTX760 will not unless you choose a slim profile card.

*There are different cases that I recommend instead. I like the ones that allow a full graphics card to exhaust directly out the side of the case.

Also, isn't the Alienware X51 an entire computer not a case? If so, why would you buy that and then change parts?

Also, the Alienware X51 alreay has an i7-4790 option. It's also OVERPRICED compared to building your own which I highly recommend ( pcpartpicker ).
