Hi, Mike2012 here. Currently I have an HD 7850 in an OEM Dell case and it just barely fits in there. So I'm planning to upgrade to an HD 7970 GHZ eventually and I know it's probably not going to fit in the case.

So I'm looking for recommendations, for a case that's around $100 or lower, that will be able to fit the HD 7970 GHZ and still have lots of extra room. The length of the HD 7970 GHZ is around 11.22", so I would like a case that's a couple more inches than that.

I basically want a case, that will fit the HD 7970 GHZ and still have a lot of room to manage wires.

In my current OEM Dell case, there's almost no room to manage wires.

All cases will fit that card - the 300R doesn't have a top drive cage so there's plenty of room, and the others have removable top drive cages so you can take out the top half of the drive bays to accommodate the 7970. :)
