I've spent a good bit of time searching for overall dimensions for the following cards but can't find anything.
I need to know the length of the cards and how many slot they block before i can order one of them.

I emailed the questuion to Sapphire twech support but haven't heard back.

Please reply if you know the overall length of these cards and how many slots they block.

SAPPHIRE Vapor-X HD5850 2GB GDDR5

SAPPHIRE HD5850 1GB GDDR5

Thanks

Thanks. These cards occupy two slots or just use one slot then block the one next to it? In any event it appears i need a new PC.

It appears I need to replace my new PC because it uses the Intel DH55TC mb which is probably too cramped for either card.

note the blue slot is the PCIe slot.

the cards will fit if

1) your case has enough room, get out your measuring tape. even most mini towers will fit a 9.5" card

2) the PCI- E x1 under your PCI-E 2.0 slot is free

it's going to be very tight as the SATA mb connectors will be under the Sapphire video card and I'll have to move the HDD to another bay which is no big deal. And I've got to find a good quality 600watt power supply with a depth of no more than 140mm.
I'll measure again inside the case.

you may need to get the SATA cables with the right angle connectors

Cool, didn't know they existed. I like the PC and with the current video card upgrade to Sapphire 5670 1GB ddr5 it performs OK but i spend hours using Real Flight G5 Flight simulator and it runs bests @1024x768 16bit. I want to run it at 19200x1200
32bit which is monitors native resolution.

The 5850 isn't that large unlike some 5830s and the well known 5970. The largest card that I have ever tried to use was the massive 7900gts duo which was the same size as the 5970. 9.5in cards are typically aren't to long for most cases like the 9800gt standard or the 3870 as examples. The cards that really made people worry was the 8800gtx and the 4850x2. So if you really want to know is look up the sizes of the cards and make cardboard cutouts matching their physical dimensions such as length and height.
