550 Ti in a Micro ATX case. Doable?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to build a system using a Micro ATX case. I've already selected almost everything aside from powersupply and graphics card.

1.I was wondering if a Standard 550 Ti would fit inside a typical Micro ATX case.

2.I'm also puzzled by the size of power supply I should use as I don't know for sure if a regular 400/500 ish PSU would fit inside one.

3.Which brand of 550 Ti should I get? I'm thinking Asus at the moment.

4.I need suggestions about a power supply around 400-500w mark that is 80+ Gold. I'm probably gonna use a 2500K and overclock it to around 4 GHz. (I know I can search newegg for one but I rather hear your opnions guys.)

Is the case low profile only? I don't think I've seen any low profile 550 Tis. Palit/Gainward did make a low profile GTS 450.

BTW, what kind of price are you getting on the 550? If it's 110 USD or more, there are better options.

I see you've changed your profile picture lol.

If by low profile you mean single sloth cards then that's not an issue. I'm currently looking at these two mATX cases:

If you find something better, make sure to let me know. I'm open to suggestions. I'm looking for a mATX case with preferebly 2 40/50mm fans in the back for better airflow as I'm going to use a Scythe Kozuti SCKZT-1000 to cool the CPU down.

I also prefer to buy a seperate PSU.

Thanks tongue.gif.

PS: what other alternative GPU's you have in mind? I'm not neceasarily budget restricted, I just want it to be an nVidia chip.

Edit: Make that three cases I'm looking at right now:
