I'm guessing that those cards I mentioned are dual-slot?
Not true, my dual slot 8800GTS 320 fits perfectly fine. Yea but imo i think the cm690 would sorta be a downgrade from the P180 and you have quite a big budget, Try the Antec 1200, coolermaster cosmos S (or just the normal cosmos) and maybe a Lian Li.

You could always take off the tool less clips and use screws I believe, haven't checked .

Is it really worth stretching to £200 for the Silverstone Temjin TJ-09 ?? That looks like it does all I need, but the p182 is so much cheaper.

antec 1200? Do you have any links for reviews or is it not released yet, and how much is that bad boy?

That looks sweet, but what about cable management? Does it have any. In that review they haven't done any. Or does it not matter with all those fans!?!

Cable management is unique with each rig, but yes....the holes are already cut out for wire management. I had do cut my own for my Antec 900, although that's as fun as building.
