Will a MSI Geforce GTX 460 fit on the GIgabyte GA-880gm-ud2h?

My brother has this board but it didnt come with a gfx card as my dad forgot to add one. I tried to give him my old card but it was too large and made the sata socked unusable. DOes anyone know if the MSI Geforce GTX 460 will fit? dont want to order it if it will be too wide/long as well.

Thanks in advance.

  1. The MSI GTX 460 will cover one SATA slot since the card is 9.96" long, which is slightly longer than the length of the board. I would go with this EVGA GTX 460, as the card is only 8.25" and is a little less than an inch shorter than the board, so the SATA slots should be open.

  3. Often a cable like this will allow use of a SATA port even if a GPU is overhanging it. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812189198&cm_re=right_angle_sata_cable-_-12-189-198-_-Product
