Why not simply buy a larger system case. If you're wondering it will fit in a mid-size case, MAYBE. The squeeze can be so hard at times, even if they say it can, you the installer could be tasked beyond patience. The cost of the larger case will off-set the hassle you may encounter plus it will allow better airflow cooling. In all regards, you can probably squeeze the old TAX mtrbd, in a mid-size, but thos do-dads like a huge HSF fan and/or routing cables is left to the adventurous. It does come down to physical fitting at times. I wish you the best. There are too many cases to supply, "yeah, it'll work" sorta statement but typical std. components install should be OK.
I'm a big into PC gaming, and my Apevia X-Navigator (full tower) is starting to fall into a downward spiral. So I need a nice gaming case, and I've been doing my research. All the ones that I really like are all mid-towers and if there is a full-tower I like it's usually extremely expensive. So I've come to cnet to ask about what might happen if I decided to move onto a mid-tower case. Problem is that I'm not so sure if all my current parts would fit into one. I've got a Fatal1ty FP-IN9 motherboard that's probably standard ATX so that would probably fit right? My biggest concern is that I recently acquired an EVGA 9800GTX+ which I've heard people say are humongous and I didn't believe it till I saw it myself. Those cards are gigantic! So I'm afraid if I go to a mid-tower it wouldn't fit into my case. My third concern is that I have a rather large Zalman cooler, I can't name it specifically off the top of my head but its one that has the fan inside the copper spiral with plates and it has blue LEDs and pipes coming from the cpu. So if anyone knows for sure that I could pull this off or not I would be very grateful.
P.S. I might try SLI again in the future so would I have enough room for that or a single card?
Thanks a ton,
