I second the vote for the HD 4890 1Gig.......assuming it's available there
and at a competitive price. When I upgraded from an 8800GT to a GTX 260
card, the size (length) difference was vast. Surgery required on my full
sized case. I don't thing the HD 48XX series is as long as the nVidia
beasts. Check your case against the HD 4890 dimensions.....I'll give you
imperial and metric below.

9.5 x 4.376 x 3.8
24.1 x 11 x 3.8
