so I'm planning to buy a desktop for around €700 with screen (no hdd, i have already have one)
i'm worried that the two slot card wont have a free slot on the computer case outline if the pci slot is at the top (so if you want to make it fit, you'll have to cut out some of the case)

- components:
Sapphire R7 260X OC
Intel Core i5 4430 / 3 GHz
MSI B85M-E33 (dont need another card in the future)
Spire CoolBox 503 SPD503B
LG IPS237L-BN

- link that includes all components (sorry for dutch website)
link

also, if you have any other recommendations for the components, i'm all ears!

Im puzzled as to why that gpu card is the same price in euros as in USD. your paying 20$ more than it would normally cost..

That card.. I have a feeling you can get a more powerful one for cheaper but I can't really name you one. You've seemed to have picked to really really cheap stuff and its just not worth the money. Any other dutch websites you know off? the website your using is literally robbing you

The micro atx motherboard should line up in any atx type case. It only has 1 pci16 slot, and 1 pci1x slot.

looking at the pictures
the PCI slot is near the bottom (the blue slot)

and the case looks like a standard case
so no reason why it doesn't have slots to be removed for extra PCI slots (2 slot video cards)

doesn't seems to have anything blocking the area for a 2 slot video card

Thanks for your reply, I greatly appreciate it!
I know of some other sites but i'm afraid that in comparison this site has the cheapest parts. I also didnt really care about the case so i took the cheapest one. My other option in gpu would be gtx650ti boost (for about 20 euros more). I don't really know much about hardware, I looked up some reviews and also looked at the budget gaming pc challenge here.

I'm a little concerned about this, also about the cheaper parts that really aren't worth the money. I'm not really sure where I have to start looking.

It looks a little confusing to me, but if I understand correctly:
the card will be cooler side faced down, having enough space to fit.

thanks, it was a long time ago since i looked at the insides of a desktop
