Hi guys,
I was thinking of buying an Thermaltake Element G case as I need a new case and this one fits exactly in the sizes to the spot it'll be at. One of my main concerns about it is that the in space isn't to big and the graphic card I use (EVGA GTX 275) will hit the panel on the other side or be very close to it, is it correct that the inner space isn't big or actually it is? And generally how good is this case, worth the 130 dollar price?

Thanks

Personally, I'd go with the HAF 922 instead.

Your GTX275 has a lendgh of 10,5inch ( http://www.nvidia.com/object/product_geforce_gtx_275_us... ) and this case supports that lendgh as you can see in the vidio below.

If you like it, go for it. It's a high quality midtower with a lot of features.
However it have some weakpoints:

No side panel window, not even an optional one
No anti-vibration mechanisms for the HDs.
No eSATA and FireWire port.
No meshed covers on all expansion slots.
No dust filter on the side panel fan.
Covers from water-cooling holes need to be broken.

If you don't mind these little issues, go for it. it's a fantastic case.

Thanks for the replays guys but I have a few problems with other cases you mentioned because they are big. The length of the case that I can put is only up to around 53cm and the Element G is 52cm so it fits very good while both the Sniper and the HAF 922 are around 56cm which isn't good to me.
What do you think I should do? Go for the Element G or pick other one?

Thanks

Go for the THERMALTAKE Element G. It's a very good case. You won't be disappointed at all.

Are you sure the Element G has enough inner space or is it too small?

Yes, I'm sure. You won't have any problem with your gtx275.

Here you have a video where a guy shows his computer. He has a GTX275 in a THERMALTAKE Element G.
