Default Graphics Card/Motherboard Dimension Problem

I am trying to make the best of this old rig of mine. And recently the graphics card suffered a defect. So I did whatever I could to try to salvage it. But sadly it has a faulty DVI/VGA ports. I wanted to soup my computer up with something nicer. A GeForce 9800 GTX+.

After learning the dimensions of the graphics card. I must say I was a little shocked. 10.5 inc / 1.5 inc
I think that would be a bad idea to put into my computer.

Motherboard - MCP61PM-AM V.1.0A GF6150 | Ecs Mcp61pm-Am Dual Core Am2 Motherboard

Would be a tight fit.

Think it would be a better idea to update and make a fresh comp with new specs?

Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100284L Radeon HD 5750 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards
About the same price as a 9800 GTX+, but with better performance.

As for a new build, what's your budget?
