I am building my new pc soona dn would like to know if i will need a specific case for the nvidia geforce 8800gt as the card seems double the size of a normal card, and i read that it needs a compatable power supply, what would be the recomended size for the power suply. Thanks

This looks like a standard PCI-e card. Some cards are half height for low profile cases, but this is standard. Check that your motherboard doesn't have any tall components behind the PCI-e slot that might get in the way (I very much doubt that it does). You will need a 6-pin PCI-e power connector, but any modern PSU should have that. click here
