thanks. now i just need to get an adapter since my power supply only has 1 pci express connector. i doubt i'll get the 8800 though. i'll probably wait for r600, or hopeflly in 2-3 months when r600 comes out, 8800 will have fallen in price some.
~480 MM required for the 8800gtx reference design... The 8800gts is a bit shorter, more like 230 mm. Don't forget drive cables, etc. (It'll be touch and go in my case.... May have to go back to flat, airflow-blocking cables....)
Note: that's the nvidia reference, manufacturers specs may vary.
Note 2: That's a close guestimate based on an article (daily tech) showing the ati x1950 and the n8800gtx reference side to side. I tried to account for parallax, etc, but may be off a few mm's either way.
Actual specs should be coming, I think by end of next week.
