Windows 7: GTX 680 fit Alienware x51

11 Jun 2013   #11

Windows 10 Pro/ Windows 10 Pro Insider

Which cards are you looking at? The reference 670 covers 2 slots and is 9" long, the reference 680 covers 2 slots and is 10" long. I'm sure there are versions out with different specs, but I don't recall seeing a 3 slot 670. Longer, maybe such as the Gigabyte windforce, but the reference cards are not.

Not really. 670's can be easily overclocked to 680 speeds anyway.

And the Asus DCUII is a triple slot card.

Speculation should lead to a phone call, end the conjecture at the source, so you can rest easy is my motto.
