Case advice for GTX 560 Ti (11")

Hey guys!

I recently put together a build, which I am picking up today. However the Case I picked up allows up to 11" for my video card, and my video card is exactly 11", so I didn't want to risk it. As such I need to find a new case, but I am not sure where to start, or what to look for. I would however like to keep the price below 70$ CAD, with at least 2 built in fans. This is my first build, and so I am still trying to learn the swing of things.

Thanks in advance for any help,

    Its a great case.Will fit even 590gtx. Allow to do a great wire management.
  2. That is a really amazing case actually, but are there any other suggestions? I only ask because that case is not carried in the store I plan on buying from, however, need be I can always order it from a different location/store.

  4. The site you are getting the other stuff from has it as well

    With you using only 1 HDD, you can remove the middle hard drive cage and it will fit fine, actually I think 2 would fit fine that way.

    You may want to order 3 120mm fans, and 1 200mm fan if you do get the case. The Cooler Master 200mm MegaFlow fits in front using the extra screws that come with the HAF 912. And I recommend Ball Bearing fans for the top. I tried non BB fans and they pretty much failed after a few months.
