Very long, 9-10inches and also watch that your motherboard does not have anything sticking up behind the PCI-E slot, power/IDE connectors.

Yeh these cards are extremely long. My mate had one and he had to replace his hard drive in order to fit it in.

What case are you fitting theh card into?

It's also worth mentioning that most HD 3850's are single slot cards whilst the HD 3870 cards take a double slot.

I was so torn between the 3850 and 3870 but thanks to other comments I'm leadng towards the 3850 just cos its single and will leave more space for the sound card.
