do you already have the case? if you do, just go measure the opening from the expansion slots to the hard drive bay. the card you want is a 10.08" card, so if the space is bigger then it will

The card is actually 11.3''x4.38'' (28.7cmx11.1cm). As carowden said, just measure it. I hope you didn't order the card already...

Interesting. Doesn't matter really, just measure for 11.3''. If it fits that, it will fit 10.08'' as well.

im upgrading so i already got the case and its 30cm(12 inches) from slot to hdd bay so it will be a squeeze, its also the 1gb version with single fan on it, i guess if it dont fit ill just have to make room or get a new case

sounds like itll fit just fine then. is that lower hard drive bay in the case removable? also what motherboard are you using? if the lowest pcie slot is x16, you can potentially put the card down there, that is if it doesnt fit up on the first slot, and if the lower hard drive bay is removeable

also have you already bought the 6950? if youre stuck on the 6950, there are better deals (assuming youre buying brand new)

these are just 2, but theyre 50 and 5 bucks less (respectively) and they are 2gb
just food for thought

i found the card i think youre talking about getting at $255 just so you know where my price differences came from

unfortunately im from UK and newegg dont ship to uk (from a google search) and i havent bought the card yet so i still have time to shop around. the card is manufacture refurbished with a 1 year warranty at £120 (around $190) and these cards new are about £160 on other sites
