do you guys think i can fit a card like gtx 285 in there?

I know i have to get a new power supply too so i can get put a better video card in there. So if not a gtx 285 do you guys know of any other high end video cards near that level or beyond it that are smaller?

Thanks.

Looks like it'd be a tight fit but it might hang under the Hard Drive cage.

From a quick look at Anandtech the GTX 560ti outperforms the GTX 285 by a reasonable deal and only measures about 9 inches. And if you grab the Gigabyte overclocked model you approach GTX 570 levels of power wink.gif.

Otherwise, a 6850 outperforms the GTX 285, is cheaper than the GTX 560 ti, and model depending can be a smaller card.

I'd try to aim for a card with a good cooler though, it looks like it might be a little air starved in that case.
