There is no way I would pay $599 for a 250gb SSD! You can get a Samsung 840pro for WAY less and it is at least as good...

In the OP, it states that there are notes at the bottom of the PCPartPicker list revealing details of the price and items chosen as well what parts I already have.

The Intel 510 series SSD I bought was from two years ago... it was a stupid impulse buy. (OMG SSDS ARE IN!!!) rolleyes.gif

I ended up buying everything, and decided to get a GTX680 Classified instead... $200 more, why not?!

We'll see if it fits in the SG05 soon enough. I'll post pictures probably sometime around the 10th-15th. I hope it all works out! biggrin.gif

I'm afraid it's 267mm long, and the SG05 is only 262mm inside frown.gif

Edit1: You can use the compare function on EVGA's website to see product dimensions.

Edit2: I had a look for you. Fastest EVGA 680 there that fits is EVGA GeForce GTX 680 SC Signature+ w/Backplate (02G-P4-2685-KR, 254mm length)

If its 267mm long, then it won't be able to fit without modding the front metal face plate. Its hard to be certain of a gpu's length because some manufacturers and reviews measure the length including the gpu bracket.
You can dremel a hole in the front plate (not the plastic front) to make it fit as others have done before. Example here. Its a reference GT280 which is 10.5 inches (267 mm) long.

Well, that is a bummer; I even bought a backplate from EVGA directly. redface.gif

I remember looking around forever and finally coming to the conclusion that it would fit. I don't even see the dimensions listed on EVGA's site, and Newegg seems to round the lengths in half inch increments... I found a build somewhere in these forums where I guy had emplaced a GTX670 FTW+ (listed as 10" on Newegg) and he stated there was a good inch of room left and that a bigger GTX680 would fit (listed as 10.5" on Newegg).

Damn... 9 millimeters, eh? Why'd I have to be greedy?! Should've just gotten the 670 as I'd originally planned. tongue.gif

Edit1: Maybe I'm blinded by my stupidity right now, but I still don't see any dimensions listed on EVGA's site, nor can I find a compare button. sad-smiley-002.gif

Edit2: Ah! Downloaded the PDF "specification sheet" and now I see the dimensions... wonder why they don't just put that on the "details" tab on the page. headscratch.gif

Edit3: And, I just found the compare checkboxes... they're on the page that displays all of their cards at once; don't see a compare button for when you're looking at a card by itself. Thanks for your help; I'm an idiot. rolleyes.gif

I don't have a dremel, but it seems like a simple enough job that wouldn't cost too much for a shop to do... maybe I can find one nearby.

GAH! doh.gif

So, I made it back from Afghanland and picked up all of my mail (41 BOXES!) which included all of these parts I had purchased.

The Classified won't fit, period. It states online that the card is 266.6mm long (10.5"), but I measured it to be approximately 276mm (10.75"). Even if I were to dremel out the front metal portion as I've seen done, the card would stick so far through the opening that the plastic shell for the front would not fit back on. Bummer - That was about $700 too much to tell me I'm an idiot. I thought I had done enough research, weighing the amount of feedback stating the card would fit with modification; but, that's not the case... unless you want to cut the plastic as well; however, you might have trouble with the power connectors running into the top then.

Pardon the droid camera

Luckily, I've got a friend who will be purchasing the card from me for $600... I'm going to order a stock EVGA 4GB GTX680, since I've actually seen that in this case.
