Default Graphics upgrade concerns...

Recently, I bought a new PSU to go with my computer as a preparation to upgrade the graphics. I am deciding on a GeForce GTX 260 (core 216) graphics card http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....2180891 67038 as this upgrade. However, a couple of things concern me...

1. Firstly: Will this sucker even fit in my case? Since I have a micro-ATX board, it is ONLY 9.6" wide! So... no doubt that this card will be longer then the board.

2. Will the card run to its peak performance? Or will some of my hardware components bottleneck it [I only have a regular PCI-e X16 slot]?

That's it for now. Many thanks!

(The specs are on my sig.)
