Question Do you think 2 9800 GTX+ will fit into a NZXT Tempest case?

Hey, I'm thinking about putting two 9800 GTX+ (factory superclocked, not that it matters...) into a new build I'm doing. The only problem is I don't know if they will fit into the case that I really, really want, the NZXT Tempest. This thing is a beast...I'm planning on OC'ing my Intel Q6700 to 3.4Ghz so I'll need the fans...anyways, to the point. Do you guys think that those video cards will fit into the Tempest without me having to move the HD bay? Thanks a lot!

Yea, I think it's a safe assumption you won't have problems with a $400 case.

Another case you should consider looking at is the Mountain Mods Pinnacle 24.

Yeh getting a single GTX260 core 216 would be a better and probably cheaper option.

$400? It's only about £90 here in the UK.

Ugh, sorry...

Tempest, Khaos, all the same to me.

Tempest is what the 900 should have been.

yeah i have that case....it keeps very cool with the regular fans it came with and im overclocking my proccessor and my 4870, and still everything is roomy and cool....I'm pretty sure it would fit in just fine....

By the way...I absolutely love this case!
