I want to purchase a new GFX card but i want to have something on the same par as the ATI 4870, looking at both ati and nvidia. The only thing is the card has to have a maximum lenght of 20cm (+/- 1cm) otherwise going to hit the harddisks

If you're running a resolution of 1680x1050 or above, and generally desire higher eye candy, then yes, more video memory is worth having. The 2gb in the 7750 I linked to, though, would likely lack the processor power to make the extra memory worth having in most situations. I posted the link due to its price. :)

The Nvidia equivalent of the 7770 would be around a 650 with an overclock. The 650ti would be faster than the 7770 - just to give you an idea.

Do you have a set budget in mind?
