Hello,
so im going to build a microATX gaming pc. The only thing that im not sure about is the GPU. So whats the best GPU for 300$ that can fit in this case: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/silverstone-case-ps08b

Now my question is.... Would any of those even fit in there?
Since the total width of the case is 15" (38.1cm), and substract the space for the HDD bays...

For 300 new, the absolute best will be a Geforce 670.

Asus has a small version of the card that is guaranteed to fit. thumb.gif

"The top mounted power supply allows for easier installation and the cleverly designed interior allows up to four 3.5” HDD, one 2.5” HDD and up to 14.1” long graphic card to be installed."

for $300 OP your best option is HD 7970 . both Sapphire HD 7970 OC and HIS HD 7970 have unlocked voltage. good cooler. take your pick. thumb.gif

Sapphire HD 7970 OC(1 Ghz)

HIS HD 7970(925 mhz)

if you want the best value for money the HD 7950 is still king.

For $300 I also vote for the HD 7970 http://amzn.to/1gzxgDJ It's by far the best card for the money in that budget range.
