The 8800GTS will fit most Silverstone cases. Just beware with the newer Silverstone cases that uses one long/large HDD cage, you may not be able to max out the # of HDDs. The 8800GTS have one power plug at the end, The GTX has two on the top, but the GTX will have probms fitting in most HTPC cases. One case that is classified as a "HTPC" tower, the Mozart TX will take any vid card out today. I run a GTX in mine, but the probm with case is that its large and finding a place to put it has been a pain. As far as stealth , just don't buy a case with LCD/VFD and don't connect the power led. The HDD led is more then enuf when the case is on and running and for people that have a LCD/VFD don't even like the HDD led, I don't connected it either.
