@CaptainZombie - I'd recommend going for the 7950. The video said that you can get 280m card in the first slot...that's basically 11inches clearance. Can you not fit 11inch from front panel to back of the case with the tray there like the video suggested???

LOL! Scam beyond belief, plus they are going to charge more is the rumor, just insane.

A 10 inch card would fit perfectly where the bracket begins. I think there would be clearance for an 11 inch card under the bracket but if the PCI-e connecttors are in the front there I really wonder if it would be an issue. I don't have any long cards to try this out with.

As far as SSD mounts go you can literally velco them and stick them to just about anything inside your case, just put it some place that is somewhat cool.

Oh yeah...forgot about the PCI connectors...that's a whole new ball game. You'll have to surf for pictures of cards with PCi connectors on the end of the card or shorter cards. I'm sure there is a solution...just going to take some time.

A GTX 770 is a gtx 680 with a titan cooler and is rumored to cost around 400$.


The GTX 780 will be based on GK110 and is rumored to cost around 700$.

 

 

 

 

I'm skipping this gen. I originally wanted to sell my 670 to get the 770, but unless the 770 can easily clock 1250 core it would be an expensive downgrade.. doh.gif

Thanks ejb. I went to TigerDirect during lunch to look and the 670's have PCI-e connectors at the end, while the 660 TI is in the middle. When I get home I'm going to open the case again and see how much clearance there would be from the top of the card to the bottom of that bracket. The 660 ti, 7950, and 670 are about 4.38 inches in height which is the same height as my 560. My 560 has the PCI-e connectors on the front of the card, so I'll unplug them on this card and see if I can have clearance to plug them in.

Or option #2, I can actually cut a piece of the bracket to give another inch or two in length. LOL! The crazy stuff we do here to make this stuff work.

I didn't think about my Windows situation, but the guy at Tiger was telling me that if I can find someone with the Win 7 64-bit I can just install the disc and then just use my Key so that way it doesn't affect them in anyway. Is that true?

I had seen a picture of a HIS 7970 in your case...the caption said barely didn't fit. It didn't say why. It looked as though it was too long where the HDD bracket was covering 2 pins of the second PCI connector. The heat pipes looked high, but I couldn't tell. I was thinking, "why not just mod the hdd cage" But its not my case
This card measures 12.24" x 5.91" x 1.65"

As far as Windows is concerned...I didn't even think of that. Not sure...I don't see why that wouldn't work. I'll research that too...I'll love this stuff!!!

Download legally, use your valid key legally

Around 10.2" for the MSI 7950 Twin Frozr 3 seems right

Thanks for the measurements to both you and ejb, this is awesome for the Win 7 64 bit going to try this and see how it works.

Remember you have to burn the windows ISO at the SLOWEST SPEED supported by your burner. If not it will give errors (at least it usually does for me)
