Best Graphic Card for a mid tower case?

doesnt matter the price, just need a graphic card that will be able to play all games in highest settings, and fits in a mid tower case, ill been looking around but cant find anything good, right now i have the PowerColor HD6770 1GB GDDR5 and it barely fits on mi case, this card is good enough to play all games at least in low/medium settings, but u know i want to play them in high and ultra, so any recommendations will be highly appreciated!

mycard dimensions: Board Dimensions 182mmx111mmx38mm

A mid tower case should have no problem housing that. My Antec 902 is techincally a mid tower, and I've got a 5970 in there. You've clearly not got a mid tower case. Could you try to link us to a picture of your case, or its specs?

there isn't a "best" card. although cases are atx standard, how much room the case can hold varies. for instance, my older Rosewill Future gaming held at like 11" max, being a standard atx case. My current Xclio 767 "super tower"(its larger than standard atx, but slightly under full tower) can literally support a gpu from the back of the case all the way to the front due to how the hard drive drives are oriented(its oriented on the sides on this specific case, leaving basically endless room for gpu). Both are legally standard atx, its the cases construction that limits what can be held in the case.

by "best" i mean a card that will be able to play all games in ultra settings with no FPS issues, and fits on the case, i dont know if there is one out in the market but thats why im coming to tomshardware becasue there is always some one smart enough to find an answer :D

Dude, seriously, you've made those upgrades and not bothered to get a more gaming oriented case?

You can get a base line Coolermaster case for about $40, or £30 if you're UK.

Honestly, get a new case before you upgrade your graphics card.

OEM case specs cant really tell you since i cant see the inside of the case and cannot physically measure how large of a gpu it can support. Also asking for ultra is one thing, but anti-alising level is another. FPS issue is also a statement that is user defined, as some people can't stand 30 fps, and others can play in 30 fps for instance. some people don't like fps under 60(very small minority with very sensitive eyes?)

A lot of people don't like FPS under 60. The really small minority would be the 120Hz/120FPS gamers.

Well if your card barely fits than you should look into buying another card with a short PCB.
This is the best card i found that can fit your case.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
And im not even 100% sure it will fit because it's 9 milimeters longer than your card.

BUT if spending some extra money doesn't bother you you should buy both a good case and an awesome graphics card.
I suggest you take a look at this case.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And if you want to max out every game you'll need a high end graphics card.

This is one of the best single-GPU cards on the market right now.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And this is its cheaper version which is also very, very good.
