One of the reviews for the Antec 900 said "You have to remove the middle hard drive inside fan mounting bracket to get a Nvidia 8800 to fit."

At 10.5 Inches these thing's are pretty good size. I never even tried to put the ones I got in a mid size tower, I just went to a full size so I don't have the room issue, An giving me a ton of room for more stuff! If you don't plan on moving it alot, A full size maybe a better option.

Yeah I bet they will fit!

An I understand that you need space to fit this thing, But geez man! If you got a nice case with a side window an light that **** up, I'm shure she'll think different! Most everyone think's it's cool to see a glowing pc. :P

A man's (Or woman's) pc is a work of art! An if built by hand something you'd want to show off, Not always wanna hide away.
I ALWAYS keep my tower's on the desk next to my monitor's.

Here are a couple of threads on other forums that have discussed this a lot. Sorry if I'm not allowed to post links to other forums

If you read through apparently even a lot of cases in the don't fit list will fit them with slight modifications, sometimes as easy as simply removing an extra HD bay.
