with black friday coming, I would like to pick up a new card if possible. There are only 2 things that I need price and size of the card.

price= $200
size= 10.5 inches

I was looking at the R9 270x since it fits those two requirements. But the prices on the amd cards are dropping pretty decent. Since the 7870 is similar to the 270x. But I browse a few amd cards and those are long and wouldn't fit in my case, NZXT M59. Are there any 7800-7900 series card that I might miss and can fill those two requirements?

Do what my friend did, break part of your card off. (Dont be a moron like him, just removed a bay slot or something. You can pick up a 7870ghz for less than an R9 270x, and the power color ones use the same tahiti gpu as the 7950/7970/R9 280x.

Get a 7950 if you can find one on a good deal.
