is your current rig cool enough in it? in which case it'll be fine. the main question i suppose is what gpu are you planning on, and will it physically fit, 5870's are quite long?

Here are the NZXT Lexa Blackline case dimensions:

length = 22.40 inches
width = 8.66 inches
height = 20.55

The case can accomodate a video card that is 10 inches long. Add another half an inches for the cable connection(s). It will be a tight fit. The case will not accomodate a video card that is 10.5 inches long. The drive cage gets in the way. If you want to install a longer video card that is longer you will need a pc case that is 24 inches long from front to back.

The width of the case is more than sufficient to accomodate large, 160mm tall cpu heatsinks.

The ATI Radeon HD 5850 is 9.50 inches (241.3mm) long. It will also fit inside the case.

For reference purposes, a standard atx motherboard is 9.60 inches wide (244 mm). The length of the 5850 and the width of the motherboard are almost the same size. :D 

The ATI 5870 and 5970 are the two cards that will be a problem.

If you have a standard atx motherboard that is Crossfire certified you can install two video cards and operate them in Crossfire mode. The cards will fit inside the case.

For the ATI Radeon HD 5870 you will need a longer case. The new Lian Li / Lancool Dragon Lord cases can accomodate an 11 inch long video card such as the 5850. The cases come in several different configurations and prices:

If you need more bling:

Take a look at this photo showing interior dimensions:

Another case with excellent ventilation, airflow and cooling is the Coolermaster HAF 932. It is a huge beast.
