Default How long are the Top End graphics cards?

I was wondering, in length, the inches of graphics cards, such as the NVIDA 8800 and the ATI X1950XTX. I'm planning on getting this case:, and it says it fits all graphics cards 8'' inches in length or lower. Are both of the cards mentioned above smaller than 8" inches. It's gonna suck if their not, because I really like the case, as it says it's smaller than regular ones, and I like slimline desktops, though not too slim.

I think the 8800GTX is 10.6", and the 8800GTS is 9".

I didn't seem to say their dimensions at Newegg, but perhaps I overlooked it. Well, looks like I won't be able to fit the 8800, but maybe the ATI!?

Yeah, I don't see how it wouldn't fit either. Even at Cyber Power, with my case, I can put any graphics card in there. I hope it fits in their all right.

I just spoke with a representative from Cyber Power, and it seems the ATI X1950XTX is only 5 inches long. Sweet. However, the 8000 series is longer that 8", and my case only supports up to 8 inches, so it looks like I'll be shootin' with ATI.
