The 5850 is 9.5"~

That's the same length as the standard ATX width.
If the case can house an ATX motherboard, it can probably house a 5850.

Just check reviews of the case and see if anyone has a 9800 GTX+, GTS 250, 4890, 5870, 5850, 5970, GTX 260, 275, 280, 285, 295 in their's.

If they can fit any of those cards, it can fit a 5850 just fine.

Thanks for the suggestion - i think i will go with the WE Caviar Black. Since it comes as a bare drive - i take it that means that i will need to buy the cable separately.

What type of cable i.e. does the cable really matter? And what length should i go for?
