Thanks for the review - I'm really intriguedby this card. But I have one problem, limited case space. I can't have a card over 9 inches long (my 8800GT is just that and it BARELY fits - the back of the power cable is mashed up against my SATA power cable for my hard drives). You would know by chance how long this card is, do you? It doesn't look like a reference board with a customer cooler, it looks like a custom layout.

Thanks!

Taken from the review:
"The card is slightly shorter than the standard PCB so this should allow some additional clearance in tight cases."

So yes, it is under 9 inches long and should fit into your case fine...

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

:yes:
