Hi James!

Check out Tom's Hardware's review for the CM Storm Enforcer. It can accomodate video cards with lengths of up to 11.1".

Checking out the video card at Newegg, it has dimensions of 11.02" x 4.72" x 1.57", with the length at 11.02".

So, yes, it will fit. :)

Thank you so much for your answer! I know it was already answered before, but getting the actual numbers right in front of me is very comforting. Thanks a whole lot!

I will disagree with whoever wrote that article. I verified with a few sources and the case does not support a 11.1" VGA with the HDD cage.

With the HDD cage, you fit up to 270mm (10.6") VGA card. Without the HDD cage (you can remove the middle cage and just use the bottom cage), you can fit up to a 390mm (15") VGA card. Of course, it depends on how many drives you have. There are three places to mount your storage drives, but you can only remove one of them.

So.. what will I have to do in order for it to fit? Remove one or more of the Hard Drive cages?

Just the top HDD cage. You still have the bottom HDD cage.

How many Hdds does one cage fit? Will it still have room for my ssd and hdd?

The top one fits 4. The bottom one fits 2. So yes. But there is also a SSD cage, so you can put your SSD in there and your HDD in the HDD cage. So if you use that configuration, then you get a total of 2 SSD and 2 HDD space without the top HDD cage.

Sounds good to me. I plan on using external HDDs anyhow so I definately wont need more than two ssd slots and two hdd drive slots.
