Default Concerned about items fitting into my case.........

I just bought an antec super lanboy and I'm concerned that I won't be able to fit the parts I have cleanly into it. Heres the setup

Im concerned most about the video card and heatsink for the cpu, I feel it will be too big for the case. Any thoughts?

first of be aware , you cant use DDR1 ram on a mobo that supports DDR2 only , sorry i forgot about your other thread kinda hard to keep track when theres new ones all the time , the mobo will fit fine and the heatsink should too considering the mobo will fit , but i doubt the 7900gtx will fit cuz the case dimensions are 16.5"(H) x 17.1"(D) x 8.2"(W) and the bfg 7900gtx dimensions are 11"(H) x 5.5"(D) x 13"(W)
notice the W (width)..

also my monitor is analog rpg input, will that monitor be able to plug into this video card, it said it had 2 dvi ports....

Also Jeremy Im confused by your post, it seems like your saying the video card is wider than the case itself....

it comes with adapters it will "plug" just fine , look at the case dimensions
click here and the card dimensions click here scroll down and click "Manufacturer Product Specifications" , as you can see dimensions are exactly as said it defintly looks like the card is wider i doubt it will fit

Trust me, its gonna be tight...ill bet the heatsink/fan may not fit cause the asus boards have the cpu socket near the top/psu area, so it may not fit...guess you already bought the case? I have a Sonata and have major "space" problems and that case there is smaller than the sonata....good luck.

yah that memory will not work, u need ddr2 memory.
