Doing a little research on video card sizes and wondering what are the known big cards in the industry that usually have issues fitting to smaller cases. By the looks of it, most of the newer cards I've looked so far are not bigger then 10.5" in length, fitting just well in the mid-tower cases.

Anyone knows any video cards that are still relevant and have difficulties in size department?

Generally, it is just the dual GPU cards, like the GTX 590 and 690 and the Radeon 6990 (and rumored-to-be-released-soon 7990). You can also find cards with custom PCBs and elaborate cooling setups that are larger than normal.

Well, most high end cards like 7970, 680, 690 and maybe, 7990 would be more than 27cm (that's like 11 inches)

If you remember, a 6990 is 30cm (12 inches)

Cards that have really good coolers are also lenghty

MSI 7970 Lightning is 30cm (12 inches), ASUS DCII is 29.5cm (11.8 inches), and many more.
