Get a new case, it sounds to me like you have a slim PC so the only cards that will fit are low profile.

Fixed your link. $100 is a LOT for a 9600GT. This is why I recommended a new case since you can get a better case, allow you to use a normal size card and it'll be cheaper than that card.

Stop messing up your links: Newegg.com - RAIDMAX Tornado ATX-238WU Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

All the connections are fairly standard and should be no problem transferring over except the front panel stuff which is going to take a bit of patience if you can't find a manual for your motherboard. It's all easy enough though, and cases come with a a bag of screws/standoffs etc.

how I do links lol.

Guys is really transferring everything from old comp to new comp? hard...

*UPDATE* ok so liek I said I got the 4670 here's the story.... I went to Tigerdirect, well before that I called them and asked for the card I was going to get, which was HIS ATI RADEON HD 4670 ICEq Turbo they said they had 20 available and turns out I went and they only sold that one at online well see I got the other version the Sapphire which had 1gb of mem and had ddr3 I just want to make sure that is still compatible with my comp look tommorow I am placing order on a new case, and just putting in the sapphire, I wanted to know if it would fit on the case that is in this thread and boom just take out everything from old and put into new


Another thing when u guys recommended that card u said I have a 350W if I recall the card requires a 400W and u guys said that was ok? if not just please find me a good case and power supply that can support it if it can't


Please reply my post because I am getting the case tommorow and I need answers thanks guys

It's all fine.

90% of cards won't fit your case cause its a small form factor... All the case recommended are mid towers with mATX/ATX mobo capability.

Forget about Watts, its amps that matter. If they said it'll run, it will.

Transfering is easy. Take pictures of the plugs if byou are afraid, so byou can just refer back.
