Default Will this GPU fit?

Hey guys, so I'm building a computer for a friend, and he decided he wanted this GTX 770: http://www.amazon.co.uk/GeForce-Dire...ywords=GTX+770

Pretty good deal as well right now. But it seems like a pretty big card, and i'm worried about whether it will fit. The case is the same as mine, the Antec One Midi:
Antec One Midi Tower Case - Mini-ITX, Micro-ATX, ATX, 2 x USB 3.0: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

So, is there a way to see whether it will fit, or do you guys have any ideas? As I said I have the case myself, so if there is any way for me to find out, it would be great.

Thanks a lot,
Danny

Well you could always just measure it:

Product Dimensions - 27.2 x 13.2 x 4.1 cm (L x W x H)

After taking a long look, I think I'm gonna go for the Fractal Design Define R4, since the middle 5 HDD trays pull out, meaning a graphics card can span its whole length if needed.
And Fractal cases are always nice

Thanks for the help!

10.5" is rather standard for a high end GPU these days. It's the antiquated drive cage setup of the Antec case that is the issue.
