Then i shall. Haha
lets just hope it fits
Would one of you guys with the hawk measure it for me.
I know it says 10.9 but Amazon shows my 6850 as 11.5 and its clearly not that size (9.5)

Not to throw a wrench in the decision making process but if you cant get a tahiti le then the 7870 loses its appeal. For only 40 more you can get a 3gb 7950....

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202006 Stock 7950

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202024 Tahiti LE 7870 and its in stock.

Not to mention you get crysis 3 and bioshock with the card.

wells i got both those games already
and tahiti came out, and there are only 3 cards that have it, and most of them are already sold out

though its nice to see a price sale on the 7950
