I purchased this computer recently:

And I'm wondering if the case will fit a Radeon HD 6850, either

http://www.amazon.com/GIGABYTE-Radeon-DisplayPort-PCI-E...

or

http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-Radeon-PCI-E-Video-10031...

Some specs:

Intel i5-2400 processor
1 TB 7200 RPM Hard Drive
Windows 7
6GB RAM
600W PSU
Radeon HD 7450

The saphire card, more than likely yes, the gigabyte card? cant say, but the gigabyte card is better imo, better cooler, 2oz pcb, better warranty.

Get a ruler and do some measuring, I think the gigabyte card is 9-9.5 inches long, say 10 to be safe.

I have a mid tower and the saphire 6850 fits well. Great performance too btw

I just measured inside and I've got just barely enough room for the gigabyte, so I'm leaning towards the sapphire just to be on the safe side. Is the performance of the sapphire considerably worse than the gigabyte or anything?
