    which graphics cards don't fit the shuttle?

    maybe a silly question, but there must be one or two that don't fit in the little box of joy?

    Not quite sure....I'll have a fiddle to see if I can fit the LeadTek FX5900U I got in one of my systems into my Shuttle tomorrow. I've measured it, and it does seem to fit...

    Probably yeah. Shuttle will just increase the size of their units slightly to accomodate two slot cards if they feel its neccessary.

    yeah or maybe just move the AGP slot more to the right giving them a bit more room, it must be something they have to think about

    Okay, might be a stupid question, but can I run a 9800pro through my SN45g? Just noticed the price of these have really come down and I'm still using an old GF3 (original).

    In answer to the title question, my AIW 9800 SE fits but I can't seem to get it to boot, might not be enough juice in the PSU (the AIW takes an extra power connector).

    Hello

    Just to say I'm currently running a GeForce FX 5700 Ultra in my RefleXion Shuttle, which is based on the large GeForce FX 5900 PCB design, and it fits and operates fine. The only slight trouble is that the molex connector on the card makes wiring it all up a bit of struggle, but that aside, it's fine. I believe the new GeForce 6800 cards are roughly the same size (although the cooling systems vary from single slot to double slot, so be careful).

    Kind Regards

    Jonty

    P.S. The last card I had was a Radeon 9600XT which was comparatively tiny, if you're looking for a small but powerful card.
