Phyical card size help
 
Hello guys,

This is my first time on these forums, i found it accedently while trying to find a new computer story (the one i used to buy parts from closed down)

here is the problem, I currently have an BFG Nvidia 8800gt OC, a p5b deluxe motherboard and i wish i could tell you what model my case is, i can say i have an 1nch and a half between the back of my 8800 and my drive bay, 1.2inch after the power plug is in.

I want to upgrade to teh ati 4870 1gb, or the gtx 260 core 216, but my fear is the size, i cant afford to upgrade both video card and cast, will either of these cards work for me, can anyone help me out with the physical size.

Also, ive never used this website before, XPressCanada but its offering cards for some great values, but these prices make me unsure of the website.

Im seeing the sapphire 4870 2gb for $279
Xpress Canada - Video Cards > PCI-Express Cards > Powered By ATI : Sapphire Vapor-X HD ATI RADEON HD 4870 2GB GDDR5 Dual Dual-Link DVI HD Audio Shader Model 4.1 800 stream processor PCI-Express 2.0 Graphics Card.
SAPPHIRE VAPOR-X HD 4870 2GB GDDR5 PCI-E

And the 4890 for $284
Xpress Canada - Video Cards > PCI-Express Cards > Powered By ATI : Sapphire ATI RADEON HD 4890 1GB GDDR5 HD Audio Shader Model 4.1 800 Stream Processor Dual Dual-Link DVI PCI-Express 2.0 Graphics Card.

But i cant find the sapphire 2gb on ncix to price compare nore can i find a 2gb 4870 anywhere really, has anyone used this site before, and know if it isa legit set up, and if these are some good values?

XpressCanada is a good legit website, the only trouble I heardwas one of my friend order to a different shipping and billing adress and they where all screwed up but after two second of custumer service they fix it and all have been good. They even give express shipping for mistake. XpressCanada is about the same as DirectCanada and i'm thinking about they are the same place...realy...Look on card soec about the size and choose after they are great card at great price.

Decided im going to buy a case too, im looking at the hal 932, i figure id buy a case this month and the card next, but looking around those card price are kind of ridiculous, seems to me that that 4870 2gb is a good buy... what do you guys think.
