This is a situation where size matters.

Which brand and model video cards are you going to install?

Which cpu heatsink are you going to install?

The GTX 295 is 10.4 inches long. Allow a little more for the power cables.

The ATI 5870 is 11 inches long. Allow a little more for the power cables.

You will need a pc case that is in excess of 20 inches in length from front to back. A length closer to 24 inches would be better. The case should also be at least 8 inches wide to accomodate a 160mm tall tower style cpu heatsink. The case will be quite a bit larger than the typical atx mid-tower case.

Here is a link to one example, the Coolermaster HAF 932:

I have that case. It is huge. Ventilation, airflow, and cooling are excellent. If you would like something different look for cases with similar dimensions.
