Hi am thinking of building myself a new htpc which i will be useing for online gaming as well and would like to get the best graphic card i could that would fit this case, have found a case which i like, the antec fusion remote veris black MATX media case ( http://www.ebuyer.com/148791-antec-fusion-remote-veris-... ) but have no idea what size graphic card i could use in this case. The size of the case is 5.5"(H) x 17.5" (W) x 16.3" (D) and if anyone could reccomend a good card i could then think about what psu and cpu and motherboard i should get....thanks for any replys i get :)

Are you planning to run at 1080p? What power supply do you have? Also, what games do you play and what kind of performance are you looking for?
