I want to trade in my 2 X HD 5770's and get a GTX 560ti OC, is it a really big card? I failed to fit a GT9800 in there, might I get a similar issue?

I find various lengths for both, probably due to manufacturer. I assume depending on heatsink/fan assy(s). I found this on the same site:

The GT9800 Height: 4.376 in Length: 9 in

The GTX 560ti Height: 4.376 in Length: 9 in

But saw as low as 8.5, and as high as 10.23. Do you have a particular manufacturer in mind?

The two 560ti cards I have are from ASUS roughly 9" long and they are small sitting next to the 570 DCII I just put in my system.

You will really like the 560 it is a sweet card.

Thanks for taking time to answer this 1, Height isn't the main issue it is the lengh, the drive bay makes it hard to fit. This was the issue with my old board Asus M2N32SLI Deluxe. (I imagine the card placement is the same as I have the same case.
Card I would like: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showprodu ... =GX-077-GI

Thanks for the info, I just don't want the drama of returning the card because it doesn't fit.
