I am looking at buying graphics cards, and alot of these modern ones are coming with the reivew "if you have a midsized tower, beware"
well I have an out of the box p.c. I am slowly upgrading (its a gateway), and it seems like a fullsized tower, but I have seen some pretty massive towers out there, and I only have 1 x16 slot, which leads me to worry that if I cant fit it in that one, there is no other option but returning it...
so, out of the box p.c., it stands about... 18 inches high, 5-7 inches wide ( I could break out the tape measure, but you guys are so smart you dont need it for this type of guesstimating, do you?)
oh, and if you wouldnt mind helping a guy out, videocard question...
should I go with a 9800 gtx+ that has 512 gddr3, or 1 gig gddr3? or spend the extra 30-40 and get the 260?

or would you guys have any suggestions for cards to get? (on a budget, just looking for an upgrade from my 79th ranked 8500 gt, got the 650 watt power supply, I figure it can run just about anything)
