    [HELP] Graphics Card Size

    Dear MPGH tech savvy people,

    I am going to get a new graphics card for my computer and I have narrowed it down to two Cards. But the thing is, I don't know whether or not they will fit in my tower. And I was also wondering whether I can move the PCI express CPU slot/connectors further back into my tower to see if the cards will fit... so please help me out D: I have a pretty shitty graphics card and I do not want to open up my tower until I get the card itself so I can just install it myself...


    And also: Once I do get a graphics card, do I install the driver software first, or do I just connect the graphics card into my PCI express slot and then boot the computer while the installer CD is inside then run it off that???


    Please give any tips since this will be the first time I install a graphics card.... AND ALSO HELP CHOOSE WHICH ONE TO CHOOOSE D: although I may go with the Radeon 5670 DDR5..


    LINKS: Visiontek - ATI Radeon 5670 1GB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card


    PNY - NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT 1GB GDDR3 PCI Express Graphics Card
