Thanks. Here is a photo of my case with GB mobo, which has 4 banks of SATA terminals at the edge. These SATA terminals are 2 banks high. The HD7950 has to extend beyond these SATA terminals which maybe be a problem unless the HD 7950 can sit higher above the SATA terminals. Sorry I can't explain too well, may be you can see it in the photo.

Do you think it will work? I have ordered it and received notice to pick it up from the local store here in Toronto, but if it does not fit, I'll have to rma it.

Edit: got a reply from NCIX, "The video card will clear the SATA ports. Basically, you will need to remove the video card to unplug any devices from the motherboard end if the cables use locking clips. This is normal with pretty much any current motherboard. "
