It should run pretty good because of your decent clock speed. The 3870x2 still runs pretty good on my friends rig w/ a 9850 phenom 1 @ 2.5 Ghz. It does run better on my Phenom 2 965 @ 3.9, though.

does any one know the dimensions of it?, cannot find it any where

but why are you buying / using a 3870x2 .. uses alot of power, produces alot of heat and no more powerful than a 5770

actually according to this it is on the same level as a 4850/5750:

also after a quick google search, it is 10.5 inches (26.5cm long)

It will work just fine, I know this card both the Gecube and the reference design. The one complaint is the pci-e switch.
