The CR-CCTF 120mm is about 6.25" tall (155mm). Your case is 8.3" wide. Chip in an inch, inch and a half to cover panels, mobo, and tray, and you will still have some room to spare.

Neither. Go with this one:
Newegg.com - XFX HD-577A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

XFX has a lifetime warranty.

The 5770 outperforms the 9800GTX+.

Like others said HD5770 is better out of those two

However, you may want to look at GTX 460 which cost $200 but you also get a free starcraft 2 game
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130562

It a very good deal in my opinion, thats if you don't mind spending $200

Newegg.com - EVGA 768-P3-1360-TR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 768MB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

At this price point I agree. The HD5830 is a solid card, but, the 460 at the same price (which it is) with free shipping (which it has) is going to get my recommendation. I'm an ATI fanboy too, so that might tell ya something.

That Starcraft 2 thing is just a trial though.
Charging people for a trial is nuts in my opinion. I would just pay for the whole game.

Marketing is a killer.



However, I would recommend the 5830 first if heat or power consumption were an issue because the 5830 produces less heat and uses less power.

It seems that you are right. I didn't notice that it was just a trial

However, GTX 460 is still very good deal
