So could I actually put a full size AGP card into the small form factor case and just leave the case open slightly? Its a gx260 so it hinges at the from so it'd be slightly triangular on the floor
If you found an AGP card that will fit, you might lose the PCI slot next to it

Go in the BIOS & disable the Chassis intrusion warning [set it to disabled] .
It will not hurt to leavr the casr open slightly & it may even help by oncreasing airflow/cooling.
The GX260 SFF "clamshell" has a known issue with motherboard failure.
That is due to the capacytors overheating.
The GX260 eowers used the exact same motherboard & don't have the issue.
I suggest you figure out a way to keep the case from accidently being shut & smashing the video card.
A little "leg" screwed to each side of the case toward the front ?
Also, don't get a power hungry AGP card that needs a extra connector as your power supply isn't all that great.
Cut a hole in the case so the video card will poke through.
I have about a half dozen GX150 "clamshells" out back.
I should try that on one !
