It's time to build a new machine and I keep hearing about people having issues fitting GTX cards into their rigs. Are there certain things either when buying a MOBO or case I need to pay attention to so I make sure and not have a space issue?
i believe that the 200 series range from 9.5-10.5 inches in length (but you might want to check it out for yourself, as im not sure.)
all mid tower cases (except the slim versions) can fit a 200 series card, you might have to move your Hard drives around but they will fit.
Make sure the heatsink on the northbridge doesn't get in the way. As for cases it just depends on the case. General advice, don't buy a really cheapy one like a linkworld or something. You can also read some of the reviews on new egg to see what people have managed to fit into the case you are looking at and if they had any particular problems.
In the newegg costumer reviews section people list their views and experiences.
There is a bright chance than someone has commented about the GTX card in that case.
For example I once read in an antec 300 review that The guy comfortably fitted a GTX 260 in his case.
