It wont hit the gpu, because it doesnt pertrude any farther out than a PCIe slot does, so it wont hit anything. You're good to go buddy.
By the way, you're using socket 775? If you dont have a core 2 quad, Ebay has q6600's for 40$
Thanks for the prompt response sir. And yea im still using a 775 >< and thats exactly what i did, bought an q6600 off ebay for 50$
. I have another question. So im thinking of buying a new Cooler/heatsink for my q6600 and was wondering if this would fit in my MOBO as well. Would i have to measure to figure out if it will fit?http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-Hyper-Plus-RR-B10-212P-G1/dp/B002G1YPH0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1361503961&sr=8-1&keywords=heatsink
