If you change the case, then I suppose you would, as long as the case supports regular sized cards.

Yes if your motherboard is the right form factor (µATX) then it should work fine.

you may have to get creative with how you mount your power supply. I would check to see what form factor your power supply is then see if you can find a case that would fit it and full sized add on cards.

of course i'll change the PSu too, because the current PSu for my Acer is just 220w :( , i'll buy a 400 or 450w to handle my PC and this vga card :)
