Hey,

The problem is I have an Antec VSK-2000 case. And I'm saving up for a GTX 680. I want the MSI N680GTX Twin Frozr III which is about 27 cm (10,62 inch) but will this all fit in my case without any problems?
Please answer =)

Regards,
Brian

You can measure it with your hands, it's not so hard. But I believe it wouldn't. And I guess it will be better idea if you pay $50-$60 more for a proper case with proper air flow. :)

I'm not really thinking of buying a new case. I'll just buy the card and I hope it will fit.

Top high end Antec cases allow for 11" video cards, not sure if your case will handle this or not.

Anyway, if it didn't fit it's easy to mod your case and cut some Metal from the HDD edge and it will fit properly.

I would heed ilysamis advice and measure the gpu space before getting the card or you might find you have a shiny new card that you can't use 'cause it doesn't fit the case, or worse, a damaged card because you had to force a connection to make it fit.

I can't find any GPU length info on Google, which is impressive. I recommend that you create a cardboard cutout of the right size and see if it fits. Don't give yourself a nasty surprise when the card arrives and you can't use it.

The case you have is 17.7" long. Subtract 6.5 inches for the hard drive & cables, and the remainder is how much space you have to work with (11.2"). Double check these measurements with the cardboard cutout measurement.
