Fitting the motherboard won't be an issue. Installing very long video cards is where people usually complain about a tight fit.

Hi newcomer an welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

The Antec900 is an ATX, m-ATX case and the Crosshair IV is an ATX mobo, so, u won't have any problem to install the mobo inside the case.

About the GPU, u can install a 5870 without problems.

I have this same build only with a crosshair 3 and a zotac gtx 460 GPU and I keep getting the no signal screen on my monitor.everything is hooked up (sorta) I'm having some issues hooking the towers AC '97, HD AUDIO, and RESET cables to the MOBO. There isn't enough space for them to all fit properly and if I have the AC '97 hooked into the portion labled power and have the HD cable hanging off of the edge in the audio seection, the system lights up and then never comes back on even when I hit the power switch. if I switch them it turns on but no display. Every "no display" post I have seen goes largely unanswered, like no one wants to help or knows how to.
