Will a 6950 fit in my machine? Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: December 23, 2010 2:24 PM in Graphics & Displays Share maximusmi2 December 16, 2010 7:13:52 AM Hi, I currently have a Sapphire 4870x2 but it's on it's last legs. I have a Thermaltake Armor+MX case and there is about 2 mm of space between the back of the card and the hard drive cage. Is the Radeon 6950 any longer than the 4870x2 as if it is I will not be able to fit it in. If so has anyone any other suggestions for a card to go for? I'm looking at a single card solution for now that I can xfire/sli later if needed. I have a p5q pro board, q6600 @3.2 and an 850w psu. Thanks More about : 6950 fit machine tigrc a b U Graphics card December 16, 2010 7:43:46 AM They are the same length - 10.5 inches. You could also save up to a GTX 570 ($350) or HD 6970 ($370). maximusmi2 December 16, 2010 7:57:53 AM Ok thanks, I have found this GTX 570 for £211.48 inc tax (apporx $334) http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX...

Searched for GTX 570 and assumed the results were for 570's. The link I put was for a 470! tigrc a b U Graphics card December 16, 2010 8:12:50 AM Oh yeah If you can't get the 570, then get the 6950 megamanx00 a c 105 U Graphics card December 16, 2010 2:02:58 PM I say go with the 6950. maximusmi2 December 16, 2010 2:45:15 PM Yeah, I think the 6950 will do nicely for now. I can add another for xfire later and they apparently scale very well, up to 99% in some cases!

I have seen that there isn't much difference between makes on the first realease moodles and it was £30 cheaper than the Sapphire. Is that correct? Thanks tigrc a b U Graphics card December 17, 2010 12:09:26 PM Yes, it is correct maximusmi2 December 17, 2010 12:17:57 PM Great, thanks tigrc a b U Graphics card December 17, 2010 12:38:34 PM No problem at all maximusmi2 December 23, 2010 8:37:59 AM It fitted with nothing to spare, in fact it just touches the hd cage. I had to remove the cage to install, didn't think the cage would fit back in without modding but just slid past! tigrc a b U Graphics card December 23, 2010 2:24:31 PM I'm glad it did fit!
