Hi guys

I have a gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 rev 1.0 MOBO currently installed, with a single Radeon 6850 HD 1GB WINDFORCE graphics card in the top pci slot.

My question is, Is it even Feasible to put 2 of these cards on this MOBO or is the card itself to large. Looking at the current 1 in there it appears as if there might be room, but, if there is it would be very very tight.

Thanks in advance guys

My top card is a XFX HD6850 W/ an aftermarket cooler, so it's now a triple slot card. My bottom card is a Gigabyte HD6850 WindForce, and even though there is about a 1/4" space between the two cards, I have no problems runnin' them in CrossFireX mode.

Both cards are clocked at 900 MHz core and 1175 Mhz memory and my temps never go above 65C testing W/ MSI Kumbuster.
55-60C while gaming.

Cheers
