So i'm planning on buying any brand of Radeon 5770.
Thing is my motherboard has a heatsync that might get in the way of the case.

if I was to buy the xfx 5770 will I be able to remove the case and still have the fan connected?

Probably NOT a good idea... they put the cases on for a reason, to direct the airflow around the card, and if it's not getting directed where it should there could be heating issues. Would another 5770 work, one that has a different design?

Here's a single slot 5770:

PowerColor card:

Or perhaps one of these designs?
