It looks like you can fit just about any card in there, so I recommend getting the Sapphire Tri-X R9 290. When I was looking for a new card, this one was recommended to me the most!Edit:
lol see, rdr09 recommended it too! The card itself is 100% reference except for the cooler, but the cooler is awesome
I think the Tri-X should fit, but i think i'm gonna make some measurements anyway, becasue i have the fan at the right of both the 7950s, so it takes some space. In case it won't fit because of the fan, which other brand would you recommend?

I used to measure fps when I had the 7900 cards. I had to crossfire them to max out C3 using 1080. a single 7900 can't but a single 290 can.
I've read that there's quite a difference between the 7950 crossfire and the r9 290 (crossfire should be a bit more powerfull), anyway that should be, in the end, pretty much in benchmarks only since many games don't use it too well, and because of microstuttering (i'm noticing micro-stuttering quite a bit, i have to play at 55-60fps with crossfire enabled to not notice that; with crossfire disabled 40-45fps are more then enough instead).
Another thing, anyways: to compare the 780 and the r9 290 (the Tri-X at this point) better, which 780 brand would you pick if you had to?
