    Hey all, I was just wondering if sum1 could help me out with a small issue i have, i need to know if the 4870x2 will fit in a cooler master centurion 5 on a gigabyte P35 motherboard (I dont know if motherboard size matters but i know i have 1 PCIe 16x slot on it). Dont know heaps about hardware but i'm pretty sure thats all i need to know, thx very much in advance :)

    I dont have that case, but i can let you know the length of the card... its approximately ~10.5" Inches long.

    Is there anyway that i can check myself, i just don't know if it will interfere with other slots and stuff. Will it be hard for me to check myself? It's just my computer is in a REALLY hard place to unplug and i don't wanna unplug it for nothing.

    A ruler doesn't take into account curves in the card nor does it take into account obstructions. Thanks for bein a smart arse though :)

    explain where a curve on the card might interfere that a ruler couldnt measure out?

    its not like youre trying to fit some 4D object into 2D space here...

    lol yeah, the motherboard is what fits the width of the card, and should be fine there, the case you only have to worry about the length of the card which is 1 dimension!!! :D
