most mid cases don't have a problem accommodating and video card..im not sure about ur case but you shouldn't worry. Even if you did have to cut it up, it isn't that much work.

Well I haven't ordered it yet but I'm glad I didn't because as it turns out the Mobo cannot overclock but I found another one that can

My old motherboard that my brothers fryed :' (
It was AM2+ ready as well, all I would have needed is 1066mz ram and a new CPU and my comp would be running for another 2 years or so.

Its a great overclocker as well, the only downside is 1 PCI-Express slot. Then again SLI and Crossfire aren't really worth the extra money.

Last night I dug out a old PSU from some old HP and I hooked it up to the Mobo to just to check and see if it was working. but now I need to know if i can use an 8-pin power connector on it, This one has one but I'm think it also has a 4-pin too.
