Default The gfx card is too big!

I'm planning to be buying a new gfx card to compliment my new pc. however, the new gfx card is 10 - 12 inches long. If it can not fit into my pc, how hard will it be to transfer my mother board + co to a new, bigger case?

Its very easy just make sure to ground yourself out so you dont have any static in your body. Just touch the metal case before you start. And you might want to have the motherboard book for the front pin setup. Power switch speaker reset HDD led. But it's really easy and the pins are usually marked.
