Default case size?

i saw somoene mention that the new cards that support DX10 will be massive and that makes sense with the heat theyll be emitting, probably have massive heat sinks

can someone just tell me if the COOLERMASTER RC-531 CENTURION will be able to fit em? I dont want to regret a $1xx+ purchase.

thanks! regards from greece

Any mid-tower or bigger should fit the grahic cards. Some cards may be long enough to block a hard drive from fitting in the bay in smaller cases.

Midi towers may struggle to fit them in with a hard drive cage adjacent the PCIE slot. I know I struggle to get 6800 series and the ATI cards due to the power cable.

If you are prepared to modify the case and or re wire the power cable than you can make it fit.

(The link doesn't work for me.)
