Ouch. That looks like a tight fit, but how did you manage to get it in there? You mention you did it after the motherboard but how would having done it before been any better?

Im thinking about getting the seasonic series x 650 for this case... Do you guys recommend.

I cant really afford the 970... Any other gpu that will fit and good for photoshop and light video editing/gaming.

Im also planning to use the h1008 cpu cooler and hear alot about a push pull setup - how do i achieve that?

Thanks

It would help to know your budget. I can understand a 970 being a bit much but for far less money you could have a R9 290 or even a R9 290x. If time is not an issue for you then perhaps you might want to consider waiting for the GTX 960.

The 970 is around 300... I would like to. Spend 150 to 200.

I heard the 760ti is good... How does that compare to 290x

I find that sites like this help a lot when looking for a new video card. The numbers may not always be accurate but for the most part they give you a better understanding on how each card stacks up against each other.

Not sure how you would get your hands on a 760ti. As I understand it, this was an OEM specific card. At any rate, for the money I am sure you could get your hands on a much better card such as a 770, 280 / 7950 or 280x / 7970.

Thanks - does that mean you do not recommend the 750ti? Also, isn't there only a limited number of cards that fits our case..

wow lightgrabber....that does not look bad at all....cutting a hole on the clear side panel for the heat pipes....was also thinking of doing that before...but I was imagining it might look bad.....but you did a very good job in cutting that thing.... :-D

I guess it would have been easier. It took me quite a bit of force to push the casing aside to get the Strix in. Next time I would not try it so.
