They have the 1G version at newegg for $6 more,i would get that one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... EDIT idn't see how much you actually save at Tiger Direct. | Report abuse thedigitalrob December 20, 2010 1:18:41 PM Unfortunatley It has already been purchased. And I went with the galaxy because at the time of purchase it was cheaper than any other 1gb model. Purple Stank: I could not find any measurements. Would the GPU be raised slightly when plugged in? | Report abuse Related ressources Intel fan installation help ( please respond , this is urgent) - Forum Replaced RAM - Monitor don't respond - Forum Bottlenecking problem RAM/OC cpu problem * please respond fast* - Forum CPU master please respond - Forum K7VAT+ REV:3.0 -KT133 CPU UPGRADE - PLEASE RESPOND ! - Forum Ask the community Publish Best solution wolfram23 Graphics card Master Motherboard Expert December 20, 2010 1:46:41 PM If you already bought it, then there's nothing else to do but try it out. It would be pretty unreasonable for MSI to make a mobo that has a heat sink that would interfere with a GPU. That just doesn't make sense, they'd get burned for it. Anyway judging from the pics the heat sink looks pretty flush to the top of the PCIe slot, so clearance shouldn't be an issue. | Report abuse thedigitalrob December 20, 2010 2:45:41 PM Best answer selected by thedigitalrob. | Report abuse thedigitalrob December 20, 2010 2:47:04 PM Thank you for your help...just have to wait 5 more days to see if it will work out ok. | Report abuse Mousemonkey Graphics card Master Motherboard Expert December 20, 2010 5:19:35 PM This topic has been closed by Mousemonkey | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>Will my GPU interfere with my Motherboard?
