What are the exact lengths of each card? Want to know if I can fit a GTX 280 in my P182 with the fan attached to the top HDD cage.

9.5' for the 4870
10.5' for the GTX280
And you would have to remove that fan if your going for the 280, not sure about the 4870 tho....

You going to be able to squeeze it in there? I had to get a new mobo when I upgraded to my 3870, 24 pin connector was too close the pci express slot =\

Also remember that the 4870 has the power connectors facing towards the front of the case, so it extends the length of the card by a good half inch anyway.
