    Ok! So I danced with death a little bit and managed to get the SSD in!!!! Hallelujah sweet baby Jesus! I feel great because I didn't have to remove the CPU heat sink.
    I did it by removing a metal plate held on by two screws Click image for larger version.

ID:	43920 and I oh so slightly bent the red plastic as I inserted the SSD from the inside, ( NOT thru the front ). It only worked after I removed two screws holding the DVD case and slid that back about 1/4 of an inch and squeezed it in, it was tight, the sides of the SSD got a little scraped up and I'm probably not gonna get it out but it's in lol.

    Do you think the 980 will be able to cool ok with the tight space in the g20 chassis?

    That black plastic brace in the back of the GPU can be slid back to accommodate something larger.

    As far as temps go the case had no problem keeping the 760 Cool even after a mean OC so a stock 980 should have no problem with temps. However, I wouldn't OC 980.

    Well I think I found what's securing the HDD but I'm gonna call it a night, tomorrow I'll get some tools I think I need and I'll finish it. Once the new HDD is in the GTX 980 should be a piece of cake.
    I'll keep everyone here updated.

    I've been looking for the power adapter online and unfortunately have not had much luck, I'm going to go into a local electronics store and see what they can come up with.
    would you be able to provide a link to where you purchased the gtx980 you will be using?
    I think ill let my HDD and other components as is, just need to boost those graphics!

    So I have a huge edit to the SSD side of this overhaul. I realized this morning that the little metal plate that I was pointing to in the picture was actually upside down but when I tried flipping it over I realize that there was no way I could get it to fit. So this is where I'm at now I had to take the SSD back out, remove the CPU heatsink as originally planned which allowed me to access the DVD drive tray and after removing the tray I was able to slide in the SSD easily.Click image for larger version.
