    Just watched an unboxing of the XFX ATI 5770 on youtube and man is this thing huge compared to my x1900. Will this even fit in my case? I planned on buying an XFX brand one off ebay for about 100$.

    Ha, so if I got a dual slot card it should fit fine? It only has one 6 pin connector and my 1900 has one in it so I shouldn't need an extra.

    If nothing else is in the PCI slots it will fit fine and only needs 1x6-pin for power. If you have other cards use spatial relations to get it to fit. :)

    Thanks! I was thinking of keeping the x1900 in for boot menu but I have dual monitors and the 2nd doesn't show up during start up so it isn't a huge problem
