It look like 26.5cm, not 28cm.

I measured them and came to the conclusion, after some simple math calculations that the card is in fact only ~25cm long. My measurements could be wrong though! ;) (The 7900Gtx is around 205mm according to this (http://www.hardforum.com/showpost.php?p=1029737315&postcount=6))

Sad news is that the G80 GTX is 28 cm. I have a 7800 GTX 512 and I use the ratio derived from the image above times the measurement I got from 7800 GTX and the result is 27.9cm. My alienware case is about 28.7 cm which barely handles the 8800 GTX. and .... I can't do the parallel insert, I have to use an angle to put the card in :rw:

I'm not sure about 28cm, and I don't feel like doing the math, but I'm told it's 11" Long...Whatever that works out to in cm...

11" = 27.94 which is ~ 28cm.

Well, look on the bright side. At least you can tell all the ladies that you're packin' 11 inches

The write up for it on Wikipedia says its 30cm, but it also says that's 11 inches, so sounds like thier conversion is off....

Do you know the shorter cards that you have there are actually around 23cm lenght? Yes the 7800/512 as well as the 1900xtx are 23cm which has been varified in several reviews and members on this site. I posted about this a few days ago.

Even if I go by the pic you posted, it looks like the 8800GTX is around 3cm longer than the other cards, so the 26.5cm figure seems to be pretty spot on. A 5cm difference would look a little different. ;)

Geforce 8800GTX length is now finally confirmed to be 10.3 inch or 27cm. It very closer to my estimate of 26.5cm. :D

Can you provide us a link which shows the length is about 27 cm?

Thanks

I think he's getting it from the Inq article.

The PCB is massive 10.3 inches, or 27 centimetres, and on top of the PCB there are couple of new things.

There is no way this card will fit into my current case. Hopefully upon release we can begin compiling a "G80 fits my case!" thread.

I love this case, I've got plenty of room for it.

To be precise: 10,3 inch = 10,3 x 2,54 = 26,16cm.
