Flaw in Thi-Chi case

ok i am putting to gether my new money pit
ThermalTake Tai Chi Aluminum ATX Case (VB5000SNS)
LANPARTY UT NF4 SLI-DR Expert
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ - Dual-Core - Socket 939 CPU
2048 MB ddr ram kingston
2 each Western Digital 250GB Caviar SE16 SATA2 Hard Drive 7200 RPM 16MB
BFG GeForce 7800 GTX OC H2O 256MB GDDR3 DVI, PCI-E Video Card
Plextor PX-740A Internal E-IDE DVD+/-R/RW Drive – Black
Enermax Liberty 620W Power Supply 20/24pin

Black Ice XTREME-2 Radiator
2 each SilverStone SST-FM121 120mm Fans
Swiftech MCP655 Inline 12v 330GPH Pump
Swiftech Bay Reservoir High-Density Polyethylene
Swiftech APOGEE Extreme Performance Universal CPU Water block
Tygon Anti-Kink Tubing
Assorted plastic fittings and clamps

the problem is that I can not put the fan guards on the fan the radiator
when I do this and try and close the door it comes into full contact with the video card about 3/4 of the way closed if I leave the fan guards off it still comes into contact but just as the door is closed
this is not good and this is before I install a seond video card with the SLI bracket
now I have find a thinner rad
maybe thats why they have a cheep video card in the picures on there site
the case needs to be 2 inches wider
