I've heard that these cards are pretty long, and will barely fit inside certain cases. Here is my build:

1. i5 2500k 3.3 GHZ 6MB Cache LGA1155 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- $196.64 w/ tax @MicroCenter
2. P8P67 R3 LGA 1155 P67 ATX Intel Motherboard ---------------------------------------------------------------- $152.94 w/ tax @MicroCenter
3. SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze 520W --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------$74.59 w/tax, shipping, etc, @newegg
4. G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1600 - F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL----------- $69.00 w/ tax@newegg
5. Samsung SpinPoint F3 HDD 1 TB ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ $59.53 w/tax @newegg
6. Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower ------------------------------------------------------------------$54.07 before rebate / $39.07 after rebate @newegg
7. Cooler Master Hyper 212+ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ $33.05 before rebate / 23.05 after rebate @ Fry's


The ram has those fin things that stick out. Also, the Cooler Master Hyper 212+ is HUGE. I'm only using one hard drive for now, will eventually go SSD when they get cheaper/better. I'm all ready to order this card:

Just want to make sure I don't screw up big time and get a card that won't even fit into my case...

the average gtx 560 is around 241mm and the antec most maximum fit would be Maximum video card size: 11"/279mm (Note: some video cards may block access to the adjacent hard.
I think you would have to sacrifice a hdd mount.

If I'm only using 1 hard drive, I should be ok then? Eventually, I do want to get a SSD, and I already have a Pioneer DVD drive that I'll be putting inside this build.
