That's a picture that someone else took inside one, it's not actually mine. The thing in the PCi slot below the card is WiFi card which I don't have. It's going to have to be something nice and compact to avoid internal collisions, looking at the mem slots there. I'll have a poke around inside tonight.

Cheers for the suggestions guys.

Nothing against Nvidia though, my 8800gtx was amazing, and the newer nvidias seem great also.
I have nothing against ATI either, it was merely a joke. I have been an nVidia fan since the days of the RIVA 128 and the GeForce 256. Their reputation for world leading firsts in the GPU field and dedication to their craft have always been a sellig point to me. For example: The GeForce 256; It was the first graphics chip with hardware transform and lighting capabilities. And it was fast. Damned fast. Ati responded in kind though, with the Radeon 9700 Pro, The first GPU with fully programmable shaders. They have both been leap frogging each other in a race for supremacy in the Graphics field for about 12 years now.

AMD decided that ATI would no longer chase ultimate performance with its top GPU, but instead it would aim for maximum 'bang for buck'. Which is contrary to what i expect from my hardware, especially in my Gaming Rigs. PC's, Hardware and Technology are my life and what i do for a living, i expect the best and cost is not a consideration i make. All things in their place and my Hardware is no exception.

I don't make like the majority of people who spout one over the other without understanding the history behind these two manufacturers. Something akin to the iPhone vs Android thing going on these days.

I have successfully measured inside and the largest dimension wise would be 24cm by 14cm double height, assuming it did not rise much above the PCI-E slot.

Looks good for that ATI or similar cards fitting then, or equiv Nvidis like this.

Alice, wholeheartedly agree with:

Sorry i took you too seriously - for reference i have a gaming PC, a mac laptop for work and an xbox running linux, i am _so_ with functionality over brand fanboyism.
