    ok, im ordering within the next half an hour so i need a quick opinion - the problem with it (here) is that i dont know weather or not it will allow room for an 8800GT with an accelero S1 attached - if you look on the picture the metal heatsink thing is tight to the pci-e slot, so im a little concerned. Anyone offer any advice?

    You will be ok...

    the metal heat sink on the mobo is no taller than the pci-e slot.

    I think you will be fine... otherwise, a trusty Dremel should do the job :)
