I'm going to build a gaming PC:

(The graphics card costs as much as the GTX 770 where I live'

Pcpartpicker says my graphics card (R9 280x Toxic) won´t fit in my case(CM Storm Enforcer). Does anyone have any suggestions for a similarly priced case with a decent appearance? Or a solution for this problem? Thanks in advance!

Sorry I know this was not the question but you should get 2x4gb ram instead of 1x8gb because it allows it to run in dual channel mode(more performance)

Not sure if you found a solution yet or not, but there's this:
Looks like for this mid tower, there is a removable drive cage for being able to put in longer graphics cards like the one you want. You may even be fine with getting the case you picked, as long as it has a removable drive cage, which I believe it does, but I'm not 100% sure.
