Card fit like a charm, I did have to remove the top tray like you can see in the pic but if I wanted to I probably could have squeezed it in. Card is a beast, plain and simple. My BF3 setting were pretty much at med-low, noAA/AF...yada yada...so I played for a bit and of course it killed it. So I switched to Ultra, and no change in performance...played flawless. Tears filled my eyes as I watched 64 player mayhem unfold on wake island in full detail.
I did have problems with the ram though, which I didn't mess with last night...on post it gave me short choppy beeps ~ 20 to 30 of them, then a 5 second pause, then repeated the beeps. I figured it was bad ram, so I took em out and my computer posted fine. I'm going to try one stick at a time when I get home. I already have 2x2gb sticks in and I'm adding 2x4gb. Anyone know what the most likely problem is here?

Edit: the 2x2gb sticks are in the white slots, and I tried the 2x4gb sticks in the blue slots. Not sure if that makes a difference but just thought I'd mention it.
