Quickie question: Would an HD 6970 (11.3") fit inside an Antec 200/300 case?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm curious about this. Anyone ever tried to fit an HD 6970 (XFX HD-697A-CNFC) into that case? Would it fit? I now know that it iwll fit inside an Antec 300, but the 200 V2?

Antec's site says there's enough space: Maximum video card size: 11.5" / 292 mm (Note: some video cards may require empty adjacent hard drive slot)

but I wanna know from others before choosing.

I don't own either, but I just looked it up and it will fit but with hardly any space, it might even poke into the HDD bay.

It will fit but you might lose 2 of the hard drive bays (see picture below)
I think the length of the 6970 varies depending on the model e.g. the coolers on some cards could stick out more than others..

I'll be using two HDD's and an SSD so I guess I can sacrifice a few HDD slots.
