    The case will show specifications that say the size and max allocation for PSU and GPUs as well as the board configurations that work with it.

    If the stite you are buying from doesn't show that, try googling the case and seeing if you can find another site that lists it.

    You should see "GPU length up to 240mm" or "up to 300mm" etc.

    Then google the card you want to use and see its length, make sure its less then the max size that will fit.

    Additionall, if you already have the case and are looking to buy a new card you can phisically measure the opening soze from inside the case at the motherboard wall across to what ever will stop the end of the card (typically thats the drive rack, but could be something else

    Also, height can also bw a problem too if you are using a small factor case.

    Last, millimetres can be divided by 25.4 to equal inches and inches can be multiplied by 25.4 to equal mms if you need to confirm from a measurement to a listing

    All you have to do is look at the specifications 

    of the card for the measurements (easily found 

    online), and then measure your computer case 

    and see if it will fit. If you also haven’t purchased 

    your case yet when you buy a case they usually 

    also list the measurements as well. Standard 

    cases with at least two slots available have 

    plenty of room, but you will definitely have 

    to carefully measure if using a mini case.
