Darned graphics cards

So here I am, or rather, there I was (it was last night), trying to put together my sister's new computer. I ordered the parts and had them shipped to her place the preceding week.

Graphics cards these days are at the high end of the "wee, not so wee, and FRIGGIN' HUGE!" scale, largely because of the humongous fans that they have for cooling. The particular card I got isn't so long as to not fit in the case--at least according to the manual, and gee, I wish would give physical dimensions in the specs--but it is so long as to hang out over the SATA connections--so that we'll need right angle cables, and that will mean we won't have access to all of them. Dang it.
