Pretty much what the title says. I am looking at putting together a new computer. I know most of what I would like to go in it. However when I start looking at heatsinks, so many of them are tall enough to give me pause on what case to put them in. Also I have a geforce 285 that I will be reusing to save me some cash, so the case would need to be able to fit one of those in as well.

Any ideas and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

For a gaming pc with a long video card and a tall 160mm tower style heatsink you will need a case that is at least 19 inches in length from front to back and width of at least 8 inches.

I have the Coolermaster HAF 932 which is huge beast. It can accomodate any cpu heatsink and video card made. Ventilation, airflow, and cooling are excellent. The exterior design is something you either love or hate.

For a more classic look the Antec Twelve Hundred is a suitable case.
