    I think it's would be good to put the card next to a ruler or something, so people have some idea how long is the card.

    Seconded, exact lengths or at the very least comparison to other cards is a nice touch.

    Agreed but the way these cards are going we'll soon have to replace the ruler with a yard stick:laugh:

    Size of overall card preferably but the pcb for reference may be useful.

    It would be cool to have a "length with PCIe power cable(s) plugged in", as my 9800GT physically fits, but I can't plug in the PCIe connector if a hard drive is in the slot in-line with the card. However, one could just add a fixed value like 1/2in. to the card length if the connectors are on the back.
