I'm in the early stages of planning my first build and I have run into a small issue that I was hoping someone could help with. I am looking at using an Antec Three Hundred Illusion (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129066) for my case as well as a Radeon 6950 2GB for the graphics card. I would like to go with an MSI Twin Frozr III 6950 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127575), but I am not sure if it will fit in the case or not. I have seen systems with this case and other 6950s that fit fine, but the MSI card is a little bit wider than any other card I have seen and I haven't been able to get a definitive answer anywhere if anyone has used this combo without any problems. If anyone could confirm that they have indeed seen this combo fit well or could provide details on how much extra space they have using a different 6950 in the illusion case, I would be most grateful.
I just built a computer 2 months ago for myself that has Antec 300 Illusion case and the 6950 TwinFrozrIII.
There is about 1/2" space left behind it, so you can't put a HDD right behind it, but other than that fits great.
