It's a lot bigger than what I have in there now, and I'm worried I'll crack the mobo or something if I go pushing too hard.
I haven't had to deal with a card that size yet so I'm a little unsure of how to approach it.
Maybe I'm just overthinking...
Yep.... :)

So long as there's room in your case for a 10.5" card you'll be fine without removing the vid card. All I've ever done is lay the case on its side for ease of installation.
