I don't recommend this for a few reasons

1) Heat problems in a small case
2) Actual fitment
3) Power requirements

Most video cards are no longer than 10.5 inches. But from what i know most high end ati cards are usually at 9'-10'

It would be a bit more helpful if you give more specs on your machine.

Palit Radeon HD4870 512MB Graphics Card Review

"When doing a size comparison to some of the cards that were and are presently in its price range we can see that the HD4870 is about 1 shorter than the 9800GTX but slightly longer than the HD4850 and older HD3870. Overall, the card is 9.5 long."

Go google.
