I had a 4870 fit perfectly into my Midtower case. I got a 6950 and it is about 2 inches longer. It does have 2 gigs of ram on it so that is probably why but be carful, it is huge. Side note, the memory clock is faster on the 6950 than it is on the 6990. The 6990 does 5.0Gps while the 6950 does 5.5 and is about 300.00 dollars cheaper.

fail post is fail. On a single core this may be true, but you don't buy a 6990 if you're just intending to use 1 core...
