Does anyone know? I measured that from the far back of the case to the vertical bar (which is where HDDs etc are installed) is 10.5". I've heard reports of 8800GTs being 9", but some say 11". I guess it depends on the make, although I'm not 100% sure which make I'll get. Possibly Asus or XFX or BFG, or maybe a cheaper make.
Thanks. I can't really afford another £130 for a case (Thermaltake Kandalf I was thinking)
Can anyone else double-verify this?
As for the actual card, I was looking at getting the XFX. Mainly because it's the only one I can find on Ebuyer, Dabs or Aria.
One more thing - Should I go fro PCI-E 2? I was thinking of getting the MSI P35 Neo2 FR or Gigabyte GA-P35C-DS3R, which I've heard a lot of positive things about, but they don't support PCI-E 2. Also, is PCI-E the same as PCI-E 16x?
OK, thanks. I'll stick with the XFX 8800GT, PCI-E 16x.
I can get the combo board for the same price as the DDR2-only, so I thought I might as well get the combo. That said, I'm a lot more likely to get the MSI than the Gigabyte, as I can get it easier, cheaper, and heard some excellent stuff about it.
