ive installed several low profile cards in slim lines, the most work I ever had to do was cut a small metal strip off to make room for the dual slot bracket. Took all of 30 seconds.

and your galaxy is single slot so you wont even need to do that
it should just go right in. If the regular bracket is on it, just unscrew two screws by the DVI port and place the low profile bracket on it.

Thanks all...the new card was a bit long and I could have cut off the metal tab as indicated, but I merely removed the media bay case and bent the tab. The card fit just right thereafter.

the galaxy geforce 9600gt states it's low power @ 300w...which would still require a PSU upgrade. i'm only using it for a PC media center, and read the stock PSU would work ok for this application. so far so good.

as for threads on PSU upgrade, here's a pretty good video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8Y2PPMiiB0
