I am wondering if a GIGABYTE ATI Radeon HD6850 would fit in my case. It is an Antec NSK4480. My motherboard is and intel DZ68DB.

the video card should fit; however, I am not sure if the Antec 380W power supply that came with your case is powerful enough to run the card

It will fit, but your PSU may not have the juice. What are the rest of your components?

What is the wattage of your powersupply?

I think the recommended minimum for this is 500 watts, I had no problems running two ASUS 6850 in crossfire with a 600 watt PSU. ( I also OC'd them)

you dont need a 500w psu to power a 6850. you could pull it off easily with a ~380w area. whats most important about powering a gpu is the amperage on the 12 rail

I read that the card is 9 inches long. I got a ruler and measured and it seems like it wouldn't fit because it would hit the hard drive. are you still sure it fits??

Do I need to find a shorter graphics card or will this one fit?

It will be extremely close; I would say get a shorter card.
