quick (hopefully) question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just upgraded my PC and since I moved from AGP to PCI-E, I upgraded from my AGP x800gto to a PCI-E x850xt. My x800gto card is much longer and had what looked like another smaller gpu embedded on the bottom. The new x850xt is much smaller in length and I was wondering if anyone knew why.

I cant Really Give you a straight answere apart from Some generations of cards are bigger or smaller depending on how hot they get and as a result how big the cooler on it will be..that generally goversn the sizes of g-cards.

I have even seen it when the same card but different brands r totally different sizes. So i guess they could make it smaller so they did. that is normally how it works
