    Darksaber,
    Congratulations to this nice article.
    I need help with some doubts.
    The only problem with large VGA is the cross bar?
    I have acquired this case to my future upgrade that I think include a Geforce 8800GTS 320(23,5cm).
    The distance os the intenal back panel PCIe that I measure is more than 27cm.
    I think that is possible to attach a Geforce 8800GTS 320 (23,5 cm) with the four HDs instaled on the cage?
    If I dont install the HD on the 2 uppers HD bay on the cage, is possible to put a Geforce 8800GTS 320(23,5 cm) or a Geforce 8800TGX(27cm) on the first PCIe slot(first from top to bottom)?
    Thank you.

    P.S.: sorry for my poor english.

    Well...it's different. Props for that. The front curve isn't so attractive, but good effort changing things up.

    Well a GTS may fit with all four hard drives, but it is going to be very close. considering the double high of the card and the back facing PCIe power connector, coupled with the power connector of the hard drives. Worse case szenario, you can do the following:

    Install 3 hard drives in the bottom 3 slots of the hard drive cage and install the forth drive into the topmost 5.25 inch bay with two rails (which only cost a few dollars/euros). This top drive exists, but cannot be used from the outside, due to the design of the case. That way you may even use a GeForce 8800 GTX, but do not nail me on that.

    I mentioned the fact that large cards will not fit under normal conditions, using all the hard drive slots.

    cheers

    Thank you very much for your reply.
    I´ll have only 2 HDs at the cage and a 8800GTS.
