I have been traumatized after buying a slim line HP and realizing that I was limited on the GPU deparment :p . So I would like to know if this MICRO atx case could work with any GPU! (I do not want to have to use Low profiles :/ )

The case is this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Thanks!

I just want to know what would be the best GPU that would fit inside this case.

Let's say an AMD HD 6970?

Some cards like the 6990 are close to 12.5" long, and since the case is only 13.5" long, some might not fit.
Also, the case has ventilation that is too poor to cool such a cardd.

I can suggest from personal experience the Silverstone TJ08-E which will hold a long card and has superb cooling.
It is popular and sells out quickly, so you need to shop around:

Another good one is the LIAN LI PC-V354B

I like the TJ08-E better because it can hold a tall 160mm cpu cooler.
