I am really worried about this.
I just purchased a Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Windforce 2X NVIDIA Graphics Card - 2GB but I am not sure now if this card will fin in the sugo sg05 case.
The think card dimensions are: H= 42mm, L=256.3 mm, W=131 mm.
And the space in the sugo sg05 for graphic cards is: Standard size long cards capable (10”)*, width restriction-5.11".


I think I am fine with the lenght but I am worried about the width.......

What do you think? Do you have a similar system?

According to the Case specifications you can fit 9" cards

Graphic card length reference:
ATI Radeon HD 4850/4830 - 9"
NVIDIA GeForce 9800GT - 9"
NVIDIA GeForce 9600GT/GSO - 9"
NVIDIA GeForce 8800GS/GT/GTS - 9"
NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 - 9"

So if your card is less than 9" then you can accommodate this card in your mini itx case

No, it can fit till 10" if the power connector is on the top of the card which is my case.

256.3 mm is just over the 10 inch length restriction (10 inches = 254 mm), and 131 mm is just over the width restriction (5.11 inches = 129.8 mm). I don't think that card would fit. I use this card:

in an SG06 case which has the same video card size restrictions as the SG05.

Arh I dont't know.
I have read in this forum that you can fit cards until 10.3-5".
And I have found a video in youtube of a guy using this card: Gigabyte N560OC-1GI which is 134 mm width.
The problem is that I have already bought the fkng card (I am a jackass).

Well try fitting it in see if it physically does sit in.

Hope I have been of assistance :D

Given how little clearance there is behind my 9.53 inch card, I find 10.3 inch cards fitting hard to believe. Fitting 134mm width is believable, if all of the drive-mounting brackets are removed

Yep, send the card back and get another one which WILL fit. Unless you cut a hole in your case LOL.

You have the case, is it possible for you to measure somehow the real width that fits in the case, please?

People has been fitting a evga 680gtx which is 10.5"... but you know...in the internet you can find anything..

I measured 10+5/16 inches (about 261.9 mm) as the absolute max length, not counting the extra 10mm backplate extension that the mounting screws go into. The max height with the optical+2.5 mounting bracket in place is 143mm, but that's not counting the room you'd need to plug in the pci-express power connectors if they're more than 122mm from the backplate (I measured that distance too). With the mounting bracket removed, the max height would be 172mm, again not counting power connectors.

Thank you soo much, I can't thank you enough....
So, to sum up, the lenght (256.3mm) should be fine and the height (131mm) but I don't know how big is a pci-express power connector......is less than 12mm? Another consideration, I think this card is that tall because of the disipator pipes but the conector is lower in the pcb.

I am moving in a really tight mm scale.....for my fist build.

I see what you mean about the power connector. I think you can fit it, if you're careful about the sequence of installing parts into the case. I would not have recommended an SG05 or SG06 case for a first-time builder.

I also think, and hope I can fit it.
The sequence would be first introduce the GPU in the case with no obstacles, then the motherboard and then everything else, is that right?

Thanks for everything again MauveCloud. I'll let you know if I can fit it......

No, I think you'd need to put the motherboard in before the video card. If you do it in the opposite order, you won't be able to get the motherboard in. I think the following order would work best for this case:
1. Remove obstructing items from the case (mounting brackets, and psu if you got one with the psu pre-installed)
2. With the motherboard outside the case, mount the cpu, cooler, and RAM.
3. Mount the motherboard in the case.
4. Attach the front panel connectors to the motherboard, as well as SATA cables (but don't connect the other end of the SATA cables yet).
5. Insert the video card (will probably need some difficult-to-describe twisting to get it inside the case) and mount it.
6. Mount the power supply and attach the motherboard, cpu, and pci-e connectors.
7. Mount the drive bracket(s) - mounting the drives to the brackets can be done outside the case, so the timing of that is less critical.
8. Close the case - note that it has 10 clips to go along 5 edges - the top and sides of the front, and the bottom of the left and right.

The PC is up and running, and guess what, the graphic card is 9.5 inches................ the specs in the gigabyte official page are wrong and I have plenty space.
Anyway, thank you for everything.
