hey now, no fighting =P. since i need a new case i found this Cooler master one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119216
would this be able to fit wither the Gigabyte or MSI card
though im looking for a case with not a lot of open holes. i only have 2 case fans (one front, and one rear so im trying to lessen dust) but can fit the CM 212 EVO

its a good case, but i belt my best friends pc in that LOL
though thats a good deal for a used case
this one is also nice
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139013


though honestly since i need to get a new case to even fit an HD 7870, would it be better for me to get the case ive always wanted which is this one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139005

that is a really nice looking case

this still leaves me **** faced, i rally do not know what i want get as a case the Cm690 II looks promising, how long does a case need to be to fit the MSI Hawk.
i guess what i could do is just get the card, because my HD 6850 is about 9.5" and from the back of the case to the HDD cage is 11"
so i chould have just enough space,
though i have an extra PCIE slot, how big is the loss for using the bottom PCIE slot
