Plus it has intake/vents in the end so you probably won't want to block them if it's a tight fit.

Is there a list of cases which can accommodate it? I know cases in general have increased in size but that extra inch might prove a bit of a headache, even for popular gaming chassis.

The Antec 900/1200 for instance, I know fitting a pair of 8800s/GTX280s/295s/4870x2s etc could sometimes be quite tight, especially if one was also looking to cram in 3+ HDDs.

Also, make sure you pick a card with the power outlets on the side rather than the end. I've just had an RMA replacement that has the power on the end, and I'm damn glad I got the Antec 1200 at Xmas!
