8800GTS Fit

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. My friend wants to get an 8800GTS. The problem is that it might not fit. He has a wireless network card in his pc cause that's the only way he can get internet. "Theoretically", since the 8800GTS takes up two slots, the card "should" fit. But I'm not too sure. I think the network adapter and the graphics card might touch/scratch each other. What do you guys think?

I think it fits, there is a spare PCI slot in between the 2 cards so the cooler should fit in between nicely.

If it by any chance doesnt (unlikely), remove the PCI wireless card and get a USB wireless dongle
