Im not noticing a Cooler on that list,
are you sticking with the stock unit? or intending to overclock at all? in which case I'd say look for a better Cooler as well
I dont see those cards being a problem in that case though, Its a big case :)

Oh, sorry but i'm thinking about the fans on the graphic cards. They take up two slots. In the review i posted this stands under Installation section:

We didn't encounter any problems during installation. And as you can see from the photos below, the card but uses up two slot space which is expected because of the cooler. However, you do need 2 x 6-pin PCIe power connectors ... so be sure that your power supply has this.

So i'm wondering will the be placeissues on the motherboard? Sorry if this is a stupid question. But i'm not all that inn to hardware.

Nice setup. Change rams though. Patriot, G.skills, OCz to be exact. get some ocz'z imo.

Otherwise pretty slick setup.

It's fairly standard for gaming graphics cards to take up 2 slots. There shouldn't be any unusual issues with using those cards.

You could get this G.Skill PI Series 1600 MHz CL7 6 GB kit for $5 more, but better timings, assuming you're buying from newegg. Corsair Dominators tend to cost more than other brands with the same speed/timings.

Other than that, the build looks pretty good.

I thought you'd meant was there an issue length-wise,
not side by side hehe, as Cold says lots of cards now are 2 slot sized, thats no problem man, happy building
