    Which is smaller the GT or the GTX? Are the differences between performance very big?

    The gt's are smaller if i'm correct. And yes, the performance is indeed big, hence the price too! ;)

    So get the gt then, its a good card if you can find it a good price. Just get those with aftermarket coolers on, cause they tend to be "ovens".

    Looking at your case and from experience a 9800GT will be a tight fit. Not length wise but because a 9800GTX is two slots wide. Your case is a reverse ATX and the card will not be facing down, but up and it won't fit because of the heatsink. What you could do is get a cheap basic case and you could get the 9800GTX.

    Single slot is still quite difficult to fit in those cases. I've tried and the card was bending backwards.

    The new MSI NGTS250 is prefect for you, there is a single-slot one with a small cooler. Only 9.5 inches.
