So how big is the longest video card you guys got? Got any footlongs? Voodoo Rush's? Show us some pictures!



To kick it off, here's a picture of my video card. It's that big old PCI card inside the tower.

Hehe, I guess you beat everybody to the punch with the voodoo card. Sadly the longest card I owned was a 5850, I think my Hawk is shorter than that and I have only owned a 4850->5850->GTX460.

I pretty sure my accelero extreme 4870x2 (have one) is slightly longer than the 4850x2. The 5970 w/accelero extreme cooler would probably be the longest card.

Yea maybe. The cooler itself for the 5970 is 29cm and the 4850x2 stock is 28.5cm. Pretty close.

same here, i went from a 8800GT to the 260 though, and when i got it, i didnt put it in my computer right away, i just stared at it, and was frankly kind of scared of its size.

This, i was surprised that the 470 was shorter than my 260 that it replaced.
