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!!!Edited by ejb222 - 5/14/13 at 11:46am
