Out of curiosity, where did you see that the R600 would be a 12" card?

Thanks. The good news is t will fit in my V2000, though I'll likely just stay with the 8800GTX.

humm... the inquirer says its 12" long... well believe that if you want... but it IS the inquirer

Do not base anything on what the inquirer said. They make up lots of stuff... You won't know if it will fit into a certain case until samples ship to sites for benchmarking a few weeks before it comes out.

the coolermaster centurion5 will hold a 88gtx.

its a good cheap case.

There is just no way the R600 will be a foot long. It won't fit into anything but the largest of cases. ATI would miss out on a lot of business. I think the 12" is for OEMs (assuming it really IS 12").

I am really looking forward to having info other than rumors to go by. Come on ATI... I am sure nvidia already knows what you'll be doing so let the rest of us in on the plan please.

the 8800GTX is 30cm isnt it?
so there is a good chance the XTX will be as well

Yeah but then again... ATI will miss out on a lot of business if they didn't use the standard connector from current PSUs, and it looks like they will require a special 8-pin connector.

Buyers will have to change their PSU or add an aux add-on GFX PSU. That might push many potential buyers to go with the G80, less hassle.

Unlikely, it will probably come with a 6pin-8pin adapter like current cards have a molex-6pin adapter.
