Antec Sonata Plus 550 and 4870x2 compatibility

Hello, I've been researching on Google but can't seem to find an answer to this question.

Will a 4870x2 fit inside an Antec Sonata Plus 550?

Right now, I have a 4850 sitting in my Sonata, but am looking to upgrade and found a nice deal for a 4870x2.

Thanks a bunch

  1. It would go a little bit inside the HDD bays from pictures, if you dont have anything there, it should work fine.

    How much for that 4870X2 if I may ask?
  2. The length of the 4870x2 is 10.5". This is just under an inch longer than your motherboard is wide.
    Measure with a tape measure and see if you have space. Take an extra 1/2 inch into account for the power plugs for the card. From the PCI-e backplate towards your hard drive, measure you shall. ;)
  3. The power plugs on a 4870X2 is on the side BTW.
  4. So basically, I'll have to hack away at some drive bays, i could make that work.

    the 4870x2 is for 220 btw. ^^

    Not to rain your parade, but Ive seen a pair for $375 shipped.
    But if that $215 gives you warranty then great deal it is..
  6. oh my, maybe i should reconsider. ^^
  7. Also, the 4870x2 is going to generate a lot more heat than a 4850. The Sonata is a great case, but with only the rear exhaust fan, is not a great cooling solution. I would suggest a HD57xx or HD58xx series card instead and would definitely limit any OC efforts. Good luck!!!
