  3. Your case says it supports micro motherboards so you are fine.

    That's not the concern anymore he wants to crossfire iin future ;)
  10. the MSI board you originally picked out will fit two double slot GPU's in crossfire, but it will be tight between the two cards.
  11. well i ended up going for this one

    so should be ok, might have to get a few more fans to keep it cool :-)
  12. That's a good board. If I buy MSI, I stick to the military class ones. They seem to last longer.
  13. thanks all :-)
  14. no problem your welcome!
