Before anything else here is my system specs:

E6600 @3.2ghz

P5K-E

4GB PC2 6400 (2x2gb sticks)

400gb HDD (1)

Optical Drive (1)

8800GTS 312mb

Antec EarthWatts 500W

SLK3000B

I plan on upgrading my graphics card & I want to play at 1900X1200 resolution. So far I have narrowed my choices down to 2 cards, either the HD 4870 1GB or GTX 260 Core 216. Here are my questions:

1. Can my power supply handle either one of cards mentioned and have the required connectors ?

2. Will either one fit in my case? (Maybe its time to for a change but its an old favourite :))

How tight is your 8800 in there now? I believe that I've seen/read that the GTX260 is about 1-1.5" longer then the 8800 cards... maybe someone who upgraded can comment.
