Default My 6970 (pix)

This son of a gun is easily the largest video card I've ever owed.



As large as a gallon of milk and weighs as much.



BARELY fits in an Antec 300 case!



Comparison with the HD4850 and HD4650 I had been using for my triple monitor setup.

Ahh, I see where the fan blades might be interfered with by the power connector, especially if the blades flex slightly under rotation.

Yes you can just see it in that middle picture.

Hmmm time to show you a real graphics card compared to a bottle of milk?

AFAIK this is a Semiaccurate first. Might be the start of a rather unfortunate forum competition hehehehe.

lol, I was originally going to show my 5970 but that would mean taking it out of the case/cleaning up the case but I have just remembered what else I have available and some1 can help me by letting me know what the actual card is with out having to remove the spreader

I had to modify my case slightly to get my 6970 to fit, the thing is fracking huge.

A weird size comparison to say the least, but probably the best real word reference I've ever seen, really gives you an idea of how massive the card is. A 300 is really not a case to sneeze at ************ if that card isn't huge

Me too, otherwise I would have needed a cutting torch to make room in my case.
