No it wont. I have a Gigabyte Aurora, which is not exactly small.

Fuck you very much Nvida.

R600 better be smaller.

The motherboard photo I'm using was 377 X 351 pixels, and the size of the board is 12 X 9.6 inches. So I calulated that the board is 304.8 X 243.84mm.
Then I divided 377 by 304.8mm, so I figured out that 1mm = 1.23687664 pixels
The 8800GTX is 280mm long with 35mm cooler, so I multiplied 280 X 1.23687664 to get (rounded) 350 pixels. After that I copied two 350 X 15 rectangles the the motherboard photo and pasted them on, the same goes for the cooler exept it was wider and thicker.

Thermaltake Tsunami does not fit the 8800GTX. It's just a tad to big I'd try the 8800GT, at 24cm long.

It will fit in the P180 just fine if you take out the HD cage (which slides right out). Most people probably use the lower HD cage anyway to keep the heat out of the upper chamber.

Good point little guy, but not everyone wants to mod there case. I personally don't mind modding, if it looks good... Then again my case already fits the 8800GXT :P
