Well I was thinking...it looks like it has good overclocking ability & it supports my existing processor (E6300) and quad cores for the near future.

It has double the RAM of my existing MB (8gig) if and when I go to Vista.

Can I fit a 8800GTX into a Micro ATX? Here is a photo of my box.

Thats a XFX 8600GT in there now. The 8800GTX are big, about 11-12in long I think.

Thank You

Yeah, it'll fit in there easy as long as you aren't putting any drive racks in the lower right area of your case.

Ventilation could be a problem though unless your side panel has a fan in the graphics card area.

OK thanks CaptNKILL! I did strap a fan to the bottom of the rear exhaust fan so it's blowing on the bottom of the video card. I have also added a front fan to suck air into the box.
