    Question Biggest 3D card you can fit in a Shuttle SD39P2

    Hi All,

    I am trying to find out what 3D card i can upgrade to that will fit in my Shuttle SD39P2???

    I currently have a EVGA 8800GTS 640MB which is pretty big and takes most of the room up...
    was wondering if i can fit a 8800GTX of 9800GTX in?

    Cheers for the help

    I have the sx38 p2 pro and from the looks of it its the same case. I have heard you can squeeze the 8800GTX and 9800GTX cards in but they need a bit of modding on the cooler to fit. You cut a little bit off to make it fit around the motherboard 12v connector.

    Not to sure on the motherboard layout on the SD model so if you have a pic put that up to I got the 8800GTS 512 in my sx38, bit of a squeeze with the psu in the way but moving most the wires out the way and a bit of pushing it goes in.

    your 8800 gts should be able to handle most games shouldn't it? would an upgrade make that much of a difference? i'd have guessed only a gx2, gtx280 or the upcoming 4870 X2 would see a significant increase in performance.

    XFX are due to release a single slot 9800GT, might be worth looking into that. Its not on the site yet but seen a shot of it over at Guru3D:

    To give you an idea my 8800gts asus card is about 1 1/2 inch from the end of the case so depends on how long the ati cards are.

    I have an SN26P and can fit a 8800GTX in with no modifications.

    Edit: According to this : http://global.shuttle.com/support_list03.jsp?PI=536 it will take an 8800GTX

    I have a HD3870 in my SD37P2 and I could also fit a 8800GTS 320mb also without any major problems. The latter was a bit of a tight fit though!!
