Default Need reassurance w/ build

Motherboard -
Video Card -
Memory -
Case -

Just wanted to make sure everything is compatible (I.E the video card can fit in the case, the PSU will work with the video card) Thanks so much I really appreciate it.

your going to have a tight fit with that case... the GTX is the same size as a full ATX mobo, but you want to have some extra wiggle room. Personally if I was spending that much all at once I would get a full tower. But you have a good case there regardless, and the rest will work together just fine.

I put a computer together a few days ago with that case and the 8800gtx fits in it just fine. You have to make sure to take out the harddrive rack before you put in the card though or you'll never get it out.

I just built with a CM Stacker STC-T01.......

It was a dream to work with, the crossflow fan that blows air all across the mobo is a very nice touch.

Great case in my opinion.
