Yes you will notice a great difference. I noticed a big difference from my 8800GTS 512MB that I had uberclocked when I went to this GTX 260 Superclocked. I had a 9800GTX+ briefly and it blew chuncks, was slower than my 8800GTS so I sent it back. Yes the 9800GTX+ and the GTX 260/280 are very long, I could barely fit it in my case, and ended up just recently taking out my hard drive cage to give it more room because it was literally bunched up right against it.

Not trouble really, it just wasn't any better and even slower in some benches than the 8800GTS it replaced so it was a waste of time.
