yea it will fit as long as its an ATX case.
my friend has the gts 250 and we managed to jam it into the smallest little case and it worked fine.

If the form factor for both the case and the mobo are ATX, you should be fine

The Elite 430 Case is a small less expensive design. I have one and there is NO WAY to mount fans on the top with an ATX Mobo mounted inside. Not even 120x12mm fans will fit!!! There is 1/4" clearance between the Mobo and top. Having said that, a Mini-ATX may allow fans to be mounted on top(maybe). If I were you, I would choose a different case. For me, it didn't matter because it's a beater case to test with... I have a GX240 Radiator sitting on top of it... LOL!



There are many other BETTER cases out there the same price.. the ThermalTake A60 is better and has a HotSwap bay on the side and all the fans mount fine... I just put one together for someone. You can use the lower internal 3.5" HD bays for cable management too... ANYTHING is probably better than the 430...
