Re: Some Questions About Hardware
Any video card will fit "on" a motherboard granted they have a PCI-E slot capable and there isn't anything blocking the heatsink, which usually doesn't happen. So yes and yes to first two questions.
Will the 1x8GB work? Yes. Should you get 2x4? Yes. You want that dual channel performance. Single channel cuts your memory bandwidth in half, which is much worse than getting say 1333 vs 1600.
Does the GPU PCB matter? Not really. The only difference is high end cards like eVGA Classified which is slightly wider, or dual GPU cards which are super long. Normal cards like the 7870 can fit in practically any mATX to ATX case on the market. And by practically I mean like 99%.
I reccomend any mATX or ATX case that fits in your budget that you like. Cases are a rather personal preference thing. If budget permits the 200r and 300r are nice starter cases and Factal makes some nice looking budget cases as well.
