I am looking to upgrade my old 4870 to a 7950. Does anyone know if it will fit in my CM Storm Scout case (just over 10.6" of space)? I was hoping to go with either the MSI or Gigabyte cards. The specs on newegg make me think it may be too tight, but I was hoping somebody else has already tried.
If it won't fit, is there a card with similar performance that will? I don't really want to go with Nvidia cause I dual boot linux and have multiple monitors at different screen sizes so I don't think Surround would work.
I ended up going with an EVGA GTX 670 in the end. The price dropped to ~$350 with a free borderlands 2. The Nvidia cards seem to be much shorter. Also, the drivers seem to work fine on linux with 2 monitors in case anyone was curious.
