Question Will a GeForce 8800 GTX fit in an Adamas Tower?

Iíve heard the GeForce 8800 GTX type cards are exceptionally large and do not fit in most Mid-Towers.

Does anyone know if a GeForce 8800 GTX card connected to an Asus P5k Premium motherboard will fit in an Adamas Tower manufactured by NZXT?

Thumbs up Adamas Tower with a GeForce 8800 GTX.

I've been told the case is 7.4 inches wide, by 17 inches long, and 19 inches tall/high, so there shouldn't be a problem fitting the GTX into the Adamas if it's only about 11 inches long.

Thanks for the help everyone.

its not a matter of fitting on your MB, but what components it actually covers when installed. IE: Cmos battery, Ram slots, sata's. I believe the GTX is 10.5" long. Also take into consideration the placement of the HD cage
