HIS Radeon HD 7850 (2Gb GDDR5) Review

 

Installation

When installing the card I had no issues at all. For most people there will be no problems since it is not a particularly long card. In fact it is right around 8″ long without the power connector, and 9″ with it plugged in. This is about the width of a normal ATX motherboard, so you do not have to worry about it being too long unless you have a tiny case.
