Re: Trying to decide on a GPU upgrade
The 8800GTS will most likely fit in any mid-tower case. It's really not that big, as people think.
If you're going for the x1950xt, then I would suggest the Zalman VF900 for vga cooling. That would probably bring the total cost of the x1950xt, to $200+.....which you should just go after the 8800GTS. But if you have good airflow in your case, the x1950xt with stock cooling will suffice.
