Default 6800gt?

Is the 6800GT a "big" video card, dimension-wise.... I read that if I use a wide or long video card with my mobo then one of the SATA connectors will be coverered to the extent that I won't be able to use it...

The 6800 GT's PCB is pretty big. High-end cards are usually not ideal for small cases...
