Sorry the picture is rough, will this card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... fit into this case http://s1128.photobucket.com/albums/m482/achmed6704/?ac... my PSU is good at it's wattage and I will be removing my HD 6850 Power Color. In your opinion, do you think this card is overkill because I will be running most demanding games at 1920x1080 at the highest settings or will my 6850 be enough for now or is there other cards that you recommend. Thanks.

The card reports 10.5" long according to your picture you have 12" if you go tight! It will fit!

Looks like it will fit to me , the only thing in the way is some wires and those can easily be moved. The card is not over kill and the better the card the better the gameplay , higher settings , higher resolutions and less strain on the gpu. As an alternative this card is 1.5 inches shorter and about $60 cheaper and is only one step below the 580 and you would get almost the same performance , and I did say almost but naturally not the same.

thanks, that settled things a bit. I probably will be getting the 570 but I don't know about the 2.5 gb version, it's supposed to run hotter and all this stuff I don't need for my resolution, I guess we need to wait and see.
