    I've got a Accent HT400 case and I've just got myself a 9800 Pro and it's all went horribly wrong.

    The card is bigger than my current 8500 which was already right up against the power supply of the dvd drive so I can't fit the card.

    So I'm now looking for a DVD drive with the power connector offset from the side of the drive. I've got a number of spare CD drive have the power offset and the card would fit if the drive wasn't so long. I need a drive less than 19cm. I can find the length/depth of the drive on various sites but not the location of the power connector.

    So if you've got a decent DVD drive with the power connector offset from the left of the drive casing could you post the model.

    Ta,

    Would a shorter drive help?

    The liteon drives are 17cms, so does the extra 2cms of space allow the card to fit?

    Might do, I'll fit the card later and see how much room I have to play with I don't think the 9800pro can be 2cm bigger than the 8500 so should fit it.

    Thanks
