Hi,

I'm planning an upgrade soon. Listed a couple of components, with a 8800GTX card and Thermaltake Tsunami casing. I have read on various sources that there is a fitting issue with these two. Some say it fits though. Can someone confirm this plz, I am stuck with this, and cant do anything. I really dont want to buy a full tower ..

Regards,

You'll have to pull the FDD rack and the HDD cage in order to have room for the thing. I've got a 7900GTX and it's a tight fit in my Tsunami case, I've got about .5" of clearance from the back of the VGA to the FDD rack.

Hope this helps.
