Default Re: GTS 250 from 8800 GTS Upgrade - Worth It ?

I think my power supply would be okay for a 260 but the problem is my case, the 260 would hit the hard drive cage and not fit unless I cut something. I hate that but I don't want to buy a new case too. At least the 8800 GTX was too long for my case and I think the 260 is the same length.

Thanks... I appreciate your input.
