I wouldn't get that RX 480. It's better to get a reference/blower-style GPU as that style blows hot air out of the case, which is ideal for the X51 case.

Technically, the maximum length is 9.5 ". As for the width, at most 4.5". But it is best to stay about 4.376" in width.

So, if you're looking for a video card, It is better if it fits these specifications.
