Default question of 5870

I am planning to build a new rig using the leo platform the next year, but now I am in a bit of a pinch selecting the case, the fact that the new 5870 is 11 inch long is quite troublesome, so make a question to the people that have already touch it and see it with their eyes, will a haf 922 be spacious enough to have this card inside of it or the big brother is better for the work?

Also I will appreciate is someone can tell me about the date release of the 5850

Just bought a Sapphire 5870 and it fits with room to spare in my coolermaster ATCS 840, the power plugs are on the top of the card, this makes it much easier to fit, with out having to bend cables around drive cages for small cases. How ever this could be an issue for narrow cases.

Guess thats why I always buy full towers.
