if youre gonna sli no wey but the 280 about the same size as my 275 so it shouldnt be a problem, it is gonna completely cover one of your pci slots so if you only have 2 others excluding the pcie for my single 275 youd better choose what u want in that one slot u got letf wisely lol im putting a network card in there to take the load off my cpu personally, might not be the case with you but it is with my asus m2a-vm. i have pretty much the exact same case as you sepc mine has red leds lol, its cramped as hell but i made it all fit

I do not think that using a network card instead of the built into the chipset ethernet adapter is going to measurably affect CPU utilization. Either way, you will need a driver - whether installed as part of the chipset drivers or the native Windows driver. And CPU utilization is becoming less important with the prevalence of the multi-core CPU.

While unrelated to the topic, i have to ask... Ursalog, wth is behind your case? it looks like you have two PSU's stacked up back there lol


I've always been partial to Antec 900 and CM 690, though i don't know if they would house the GPU you're looking at. I would assume they do though. So much about cases seems to be whatever looks good to the owner.. NZXT's are a bit too flashy for my taste, but they are good cases.
