Building a new pc, I've heard that the ATI HD5870 (which is the graphic card of my choice) is a slightly bigger card than normal, and when choosing a case I kept that in mind. I don't know the actual measurements of anything, so i figured i'll just ask. Is the Gigabyte 3D Mars case big\wide\spacey enough to put the HD5870 in it? My second choice for a case is the Coolermaster Haf 922, but I'm more inclined to choose the 3d mars because it looks better, imho.
thanx in advance.

The Radeon HD 5870 video cards are 11 inches long. Add another one half inch for the PCI-e power cables.

The Gigabyte 3D Mars is a full tower case. The length is 22.24 inches from front to back.

The 5870 should fit.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder as they say. Internally both cases are good and will fit the 5870 as stated above, but IMO both are shockingly ugly!

Then again what do I know - Storm Sniper Black and the Raven RV01 float my boat for unusual styling, and you simply cannot beat the Temjin TJ07 and Fortress FT02 for elegance.
