I have just bought a gigabyte 470 gtx SoC which is 11'' long not realizing it is 1.5'' longer than a asus 470 which is 9.5'' in length
I assumed they was all the same length and bought the gigabyte as i thought is was the best 470 to buy!
My problem is i have a pre-built dell 8100 xps and case which medium to small size and i'm worried it wont fit when i come to upgrade.
I do have a 260 gtx inside which came with the pc which is 10.5'' but i believe dell take the casing off so it fits? is this true?
I hope this 470 fits inside! The card looks great!
Thanks in advance for the advice and merry christmas!

Take a look inside and see if you have an 1/2" space left behind your GTX260 the PCB is what governs the length of the card.
