Omfg I feel like a manly ass nerd right now

I just installed my new GTX 770 after having some trouble fitting it in my case. Some of you might've seen the topic I made about this. I tried to install the 770 but the HDD case was blocking the way. I didn't know what to do so I was stressed the f*** out. Then I saw a video on how to take out the HDD case and my journey to being a manly ass nerd had began. I took out the both sides of my case, my old gfx card, removed my HDD then to the bottom of my computer then replugged those two things into my HDD, took out the HDD case that was blocking the way, then I finally had room to fit the 770. I then put back everything and everything is working fine. Before this I never even seen inside of a case in my entire life and didn't know a damn thing about how to build computers but now that I graduated to a manly ass nerd because of this I feel more confident that I can build my own computer in the future. Here is my entire specs copy and pasted from an invoice, what do you guys think I should upgrade?

-ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 92mm CPU Fan/Heatsink

-500GB 7200RPM 16MB Cache Serial ATA3(Nearly used up all of my HDD space. 90% of it is filled with pr0n)

-24X LG SATA Dual Layer DVD /-RW/CDRW w/Nero

-Was a 1GB GeForce GTX 560Ti but like I said I just installed a 4 gb 770

-Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

What kind of tiny case do you have?
I only ask so I can advise relatives not to buy PC's from them.

I got the CoolerMaster Black HAF 912 but all I had to do was remove the HDD cage thingy then it fit

I'm not sure what an ass nerd is, but I'm fairly sure I don't want to know either. At least you feel manly about it tho...

You shouldn't feel like a manly ass nerd. It's called basic problem solving. If something doesn't work or fit, you either solve it or you don't.
