exactly as the title states :)  i have a gigabyte gtx 660 ti that im worried about it fitting into the antec nsk2480 case. the case height is 140mm on the spec sheet and my gpu is 137mm. that worries me. with the things that will sit between the gpu and the case wall, mobo, standoffs, etc. im doubting it will fit. anyone know? or how to find out. crossed my mind to check pcpartpicker but this case isnt on there

It's going to be close. The case specs out at 5.5" and so does the card. And like you say, the standdoffs and board thickness will cut that by about 1/2". Looking at the back of the case, http://www.productwiki.com/upload/images/antec_nsk2480_...
it appears you have about 1/2" clearance above the top of the card's L-shaped expansion cover. I would look for a card that didn't have a shroud that extends much above that. Maybe one like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
