Re: GTX280 wont fit in Abit AB9 Mobo!!!
Wow that's kind of lame. I just looked at some of the other cards I have lying around to see if they had that same notch on them and even my GF4 MX has that on there. The only difference is that other cards probably don't extend that bump to the 2nd slot, which is why they didn't notice a problem.
Just browsed through several of XFX's other cards and none of the older cards have that thing on the bottom, which is why it was probably an oversight.
