I have two Raptors set up in RAID in my case, which means things are a bit tight around the graphic card. Where the GPU ends, the HD starts, if you see what I mean. This is not a problem with my 7800GTX, which sits slightly higher than the lower HD. However, given that the 7900GTX has a much taller cooler, my concern is that if the card is a little longer, I will have problems fitting the card into the case without the coller hitting the lower HD.

Hope that makes sense.

Out of interest, does anyone have feedback on the Gainward Bliss version this card (which has pretty standard clocks) - I usually go BFG, but there is a sweet online deal at the moment that would save me $100 going the Gainward route, for which I'll happily sacrifice the extra few extra fps the BFG would give.

Much appreciated.

The length of the PCB is exactly the same on both. Thickness, 7800GTX256 cooler 13mm and 7900GTX 34mm .
