I just bought the PowerColor HD 7770 GHz Edition, but i am concerned on whether it can fit on my Intel DH61CR motherboard. I'm hoping someone maybe has tried installing similarly sized graphics card on the same kind of board as i do (which is similar in layout to a DH61CR)

While i admit this may be a huge oversight on my part, one other factor in this is that it's hard to get a good deal on hardware in the area where i am.

I had to rely on a relative who was taking a short vacation out of town to purchase this for me, and i was too excited to think about it at that time. :D 



Here's the motherboard layout:



My concern is that the SATA ports might get in the way with this being longer than my soon-to-be replaced MSI R5670 below:




In comparison, the HD 7770 is longer, and will take up 2 slots worth of space in width:




Soooo.... has anyone had experience in installing it on the same board and succeeded? Or am i gonna be out of luck and probably out of money because i might need a new board? :)

You will be fine :) . It shouldn't reach the sata ports. Even if it does, you'll have 2 more ports.

Thanks for the reply Sunius. I'm pretty optimistic, even more right now. We'll find out in an hour or so. It's now on its way.....

It fits! Going to try some of the games and admire the difference.

I have 3 HDDs hooked up though. Would that pose to be a problem with the 450W PSU that i have, now that i have one using the 6-pin connector for PCI-E?
