I am upgrading my Acer Aspire x1700 and I had some questions regarding spacing/clearance

1. About six months ago I replaced the DVD Drive on my x1700 with a bd-rom drive. The case now does not close completely because the drive bumps into the heatsink.

Since I am replacing the CPU I am looking for a replacement heatsink that may have less surface area or a different orientation so that I can close the case fully. Does anyone have any experience replacing the heatsink on one of these?

2. I am contemplating replacing the G100 card with a GT220 so that I can use the integrated audio controller and output LPCM to my receiver. However, the low profile GT220 cards I've seen look pretty wide. Does anyone have any sense of whether the card will fit.

Here's a link to a picture of the case while open.
