Is this considered a good USB 3.0 card? (and other questions...)

The reason I ask is, at the moment I'm considering this card.

The other card I'm thinking about is this one.

Do you have any opinions as to which I should buy?

How can I tell if my case will accomodate a full height bracket?

Thanks in advance,

Can't tell you which card may be better, but a full height slot measures about 4 inches when you look at the hole in the rear of the case.

Try to get a card with an ASMEDIA USB 3.0 chipset, they have the best 3rd party driver support. unluckily not only these cards may need a firmware update but to obtain these its far from being easy.
Intel USB 3.0 chipsets on additional cards are rather non existant :/
