Hey guys

I'm building my rig soon and have hit a snag. I want to buy the ASUS maximus IV gene-z motherboard, and want to use the HAF X case, which lets face it, is huge.

I wanted to know if you guys think the motherboard will look dwarfed or the graphics card won't fit comfortably (radeon HD 7850) or any problems you might think of.

Thanks for your help

case 23.20" x 9.10" x 21.70"
mobo 9.6" x 9.6"
7950 11.4" x 5" x 1.5"

the psu will be bottom mount so it wont look so bad up and down it might even help with cable management.
but it would be like 10" side to side, with the 7950 sticking out the side 2" or so.

when you select a micro atx mobo you should try to pick ram that is not going to stick out into the pcie lane.
