    How long are these cards? I'm looking on newegg but they dont have the size listed. My 6800GT just barley fits in my LIAN LI PC-65B right now. and its about 8-9 inches.

    -thx

    The 2900 is a little longer than the 6800.

    My old 6800 was about the same length, maybe just shorter than my 1950. The 2900 is a smidgen longer, but it is still shorter than the 8800gtx.

    I thought the 2900XT was ~12 inches?

    Negative, only certain system integrator cards will be that length and I am not sure if the actual PCB is that length or the card including an extended fan shroud/mounting mechanism to hold it in place.

    It HAS to be a heavy card given the number of transistors and power management features on the product plus the sheer size/cooling capacity of that HUGE blower.

    The 6800 is roughly the same length as the 8800GTS, so if that helps put it into perspective.

    Just measured mine. It is 10.5" approx.

    Power plugs into the top not the end.
