Of course, you would be correct here. Rats. I exchanged email with PowerColor today and the SCS3 HD 5750 is reported as:
Dimension: 8.5 * 5.25 * 1.5 inches
The heatsink goes above the card by 0.75 inches.
By the way, this card popped up on Newegg today.
Any ideas for a good Micro-ATX case that is more or less like the cube form of the Q-Pack or Q-Pack2, but with enough clearance for this PowerColor card? Short of this, I guess I could use a recommendation of the quietest possible HD 5750 card out there that sports a fan and does not take up extra space above the card.
I take it omission then, that for the pursposes of this HTPC as I laid it out, that you see no value in buying the more expensive boards? And, moreover, that you see no relevant difference between the UD4 over the UD2?
