Nah, and AGP 6600GT and skt 478 is FINE. Thats what I have. You dont need to upgrade, AGP and 478 still has a little time left, actually, probably alot more time left.
As for the PSU, it dosent matter how hard it is crammed in there. As long as the wires arent being piunched and kinked and torn, you are fine. Where it resides is just it's place of being, no effect on performance. If it has to stick out two or three inches, it has to stick out two or three inches, simples as that. As long as it works properly, you could have your PSU sitting outside of your case on your desk if you wanted too.
