I'm looking to buy a new gaming rig. I want to get the Corsair 300R case and a Gigabyte 770 GTX Windforce OC 2gb. In the future I'd be wanting to add another 770 GTX in sli.

Problem is, looking at pictures with the case in use, it seems like there isn't much room for the second graphics card.

Anyone have any idea's if it might fit? Gigabyte states that the card is 292mm long.

Thanks.

From what I'm reading there shouldn't be any problem fitting that card into a 300R, Corsair claims any card less than 450mm will fit, which would make sense considering there are no drive bays. Even with another card there shouldn't be an issue with the drive bays. I'd order one and test it, maybe you could just purchase a used Titan when the time comes if a second 770 wouldn't fit, then you'd still have a single card.

In terms of length there will be no problem, the case supports as said by Corsair, "Despite its size, the 300R can fit extra-long graphics cards of up to 450mm length".

It features 7 expansion slots and your two GPUs will together only fit 4, as they're both dual-slot GPUs.

So no problem at all. However the case is not very good for the price in my perspective, but it will house what you need. :)

I'm not dead set on the case. It's just that I'm stretching my budget as it is on other goodies, meaning I'd rather not spend too much on a case. What worries me is the pictures. There seems to be plenty of room for the first card, but in the slot where the second should be, the hard drive bays seem to be an issue.

Do you have any suggestions for a better case? =)

This is cheaper and removing the hard drive cage gives you 15" of clearance. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... it's 20$ more, but it is superior.

It is silenced optimized, you can remove all the HDD cages if needed, a lot of room for cable management, plenty of room for even the longest GPUs, great built quality, fan controller. It is in my opinion the best case for the price and it is also recommended by Tomshardware. I own it myself and I am simply in love with it, I've owned a lot of cases but this is by far the best I've ever owned.
