Will a 5850 fit my case? Tags: Graphics Cards Cases Hard Drives Graphics Product Last response: April 19, 2010 1:44 AM in Graphics & Displays Share bnot April 18, 2010 3:10:21 PM Hey crew. I've been saving up to buy a 5850 for some time now but before I order it I'd like to be 100% certain everything will go as planned. I have this case: http://www.overclockercafe.com/Reviews/cases/X-Blade/in... And I'm not sure if it will fit, the measurements are on the site but I think that includes the hard drive bays aswell? Is there any harm if a graphics card is imposing on an empty hard drive bay? And secondly I have this motherboard: http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/content.php?S_ID=36... Again I'd like to be sure that it could take a 5850. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

And I need new RAM, I think my Motherboard only supports DDR2? Anyway specs are: AMD 620 x4 Nvidia 8100/720a (Yes a chipset) 2GB DDR2 RAM So I need a new PSU, 4GB RAM (Pref 2x2gb) and confirmation on the card fitting my case. bnot April 18, 2010 11:51:44 PM bump rolli59 a c 1410 U Graphics card April 19, 2010 1:13:16 AM It will fit in your case the case is 19.25" the card is 9.5" which is less than half the case http://www.overclockercafe.com/Reviews/cases/X-Blade/10... the hard drive cage is sideways which leaves even more space.
