No card gains a performance advantage with PCIe 3.0 yet, so your slot will allow the HD 7870 its full potential.

Your mobo is 12 inches tall and 9.6 inches wide. That HIS 7850 is 9.25 inches long(6pin connector on end of card). It looks like there's more than 1 inch
between the mobo tray and the drive cage in your case. It should be fine. The 6pin connector is back under the cooler shroud a ways(out of the way).

Edit: the shorter iceQ turbo is 9.25 inches long. The iceQ is over 11.25 inches. The msi is only about 7.75 inches long. Has a better cooler too(good for OCing).
