Is there a database somewhere of all graphic card lengths?

Postposted on Sun Apr 28, 2013 11:36 am

I've fallen in love with a particular case whose specs says will fit Video Graphics Cards up 9.5" in length. I want to get the most powerful graphics card for it from either AMD or Nvidia. (I'm assuming that more power equals longer length) Is there some handy table out there where I can just scan for length. I really don't want to look up each card individually.
I dont think, therefore I am not.

The best performer in the shortest space is going to be this 6.7" long GeForce GTX670:

It's not actually in stores yet.

P.S.: There is a 9.45" long Zotac ZT-60303-10P GeForce GTX670 available today for $430. It should fit into your case.

What case is it? Some cases can accept larger video cards by saving room on the power supply, or removing drive cages.

Oh gosh, now I feel bad because JustAnEngineer did all this research and I just pulled an arbitrary number from memory. Actually, the case (well cases) are not even out yet, but they were mentioned here on TechReport several says ago. Lian Li's PC-Q27 and PC-28. The actual lengths were up to 7.6" and 11.4". I was just dredding hunting and picking all the various specs from both vendors and/or retailers.

Thanks again JustAnEngineer. You should change your handle from JustAnEngineer to GreatHumanBeing. :)

11.4" will accommodate some pretty serious graphics cards, including the $1000+ GeForce GTX Titan. Asus' mini GeForce GTX670 should be strong enough for all currently-available games on a single monitor.

Wow. That is beautiful. But I'm having trouble understanding the thread. I see references to Lian Li and Silverstone. And crowd funding. That's kinda like kickstarter, right? So will this be a limited run for just the contributors or will it be available to the general public?

[Edit: Removed repetitive/unconstructive comments] If your budget it unlimited, the Asus GTX 670 Mini is going to be your best bet.

So far you've listed max lengths of 7.6", 9.5", and 11.4" Which is it? Obviously as you step up in length, more and more options present themselves. What's your budget?

Here are some more cards that will fit inside that 7.6" max length. Make sure you pay attention to where the power connector pops out (rear/side). That will add roughly an inch to the length or width of the card. Make sure this isn't going to cause any problems.

Quite a few cards are under 9.5" so I'll hold off on those recommendations until you clarify what the max length and max budget is.

Some of us actually enjoy "looking up each card individually."


I don't believe that for one second. Admit it; you guys have these memorized. :wink:

The short version of the long story is that one guy had some ideas, another guy built it in a CAD program, they sent the design to Lian-Li, and Lian-Li sent back prototypes. They did an IndieGoGo; my UNDERSTANDING (which may be inaccurate) is that that was simply to have the prototypes made, and they're going to do a Kickstarter to get funding to have a production run made.

I could be wrong about that though.
