Need help about case and GPU

"In order to fit, the XFX Radeon R9 280X 3GB Double Dissipation Video Card may require removing drive bays from the NZXT Phantom 410 (White) ATX Mid Tower Case. The case only supports video cards up to 230mm in length without removing drive bays, while the video card is 251mm long."

Is removing the drive bays worth it for me to have this card? Do I need the drive bays? What are they for? Please help! Thanks.

  1. Best answer
    drive bays are for drives duh...

    you will be able to mount 2+3 HDD on the bottom drive cage... the middle cage is optional (can hold 4+5 HDD, dont remember out of the head)... so you are good to go
  2. Drive bays are what you put your SSDs or HDDs in

    If you only have one of each, there'll still be room for yours.

    If your unsure, try another case. There's hundreds to look at.

    I already bought the case.
  5. good job, I love NZXT and how they make their products, I think they realy stand out from the competition...

    if I'm not mistaking, NZXT is focused on gamers, so ALL theirs cases(I think) are bound to accept even the longest cards...

    P.S. almost all atx cases above budget price should accept the longest cards (unless they are specificaly made to be very compact)
