Default Question reguarding putting a PCI card below a 8800GTS

I just ordered a 8800GTS however I am concerned because I will have a TV tuner card right below it. It will only cover 1/10th of the fan as it doesn't extend past the PCI slot any.

Has anyone put a card directly under a 8800, were temps fine?

I supposed I can always order an Avermedia PCI-E tuner to replace the PCI one and just move it down.

I don't see how this would influnce temps as the card would be Directly below the 8800GTS.. I've allready decided to buy an Avermedia PCI-E tuner though.

I'm sure it will be fine. I've seen many configurations like that, and they haven't really complained. If it bothers you, add in a side intake fan, if your case allows.

I have a USB 2.0 PCI card directly under my 8800GTX and even though it gets relatively warm down there, nothing bad has happened. I also have a Linksys Wireless-G PCI card under the USB PCI card and it performs just fine.
