May I ask if you had tried disabling the HDMI device to fix this before attempting the final solution i.e. full OS reinstall? I read on another forum somewhere that many people have been rescued from the grey line crash simply by killing HDMI from the device manager. Even if you use DVI one of the ports is linked to the HDMI port inside the card.

I thought I remember reading that it had something to do with the way it handles the 2D/3D clock changes. I think in some current drivers, due to a windows 7 update, in some systems it caused the voltage to drop too low in either of its clocks, which gives the crash.

Though the HDMI thing..

Well I also did a full OS install because I upgraded from XP, but I messed up the activation the first time by not installing XP on my new driver first.. and I also didn't have my 750gb partitioned at all. So I fixed all that. Could I just disable the HDMI now?

Well I'm still getting the occasional crash, but it is very odd. Its not as bad as before, but its still happening.

It seems that my chances of crashing increases dramatically once Steam opens. And this happened before I just did my install as well...

Why the heck would running steam give me such a high rate of crashing when its on two different installs? Nothing else crashes the system but when I open up steam I'd say I have an 80% chance to get a vertical bar crash. If I don't get the crash immediately, then I can usually game for how ever long I want, but when ever I will return to windows with steam still open thats when the crashing will usually begin.

Probably, if you look at the Antec 300 pictures of the inside you can see that the screws for the Mobo look like they will leave room for about an inch or so on the drive bay side. ATX will be 9" so you will probably have room to get it in there.

The question is how tight fitted would it be.

On newegg, for the Antec Mini P180 they list maximum supported graphics card size under its features... Though I'm not noticing it on the Antec 300... I would say yes it would fit, but I'd try searching the web for examples of it fitting with room to spare.

Its length is 18.30" inches. It looks like the space for the mother board leaves about 2/3 of the total length of the case. 2/3's will be 12 inches and the 5870's are 11 inches... I found this out just by looking at the newegg pictures and eyeballing it. Though it does kinda suck that they don't list the official dimensions of what you can fit inside it.

EDIT: I read under the user comments on new egg that some one listed under its cons that they had to squeeze a 4890 into it, and that card is 9.5"... the 5870 is 11"... I would say try looking for another case if you want to play it safe.


Edit again: some comments I saw from tom'shardware.

My 8800 GTX and GTX 260 (both at 10.5 inches) fit in an Antec 300 case without "wedging" them in (no drives in that area). There's about an inch to spare.
Quote:
I have a 300/GTX 260 and there is about 3/4's of an inch before you hit the HD cage... If it does not fit then all you have to do is use a dremel and modify.....
blah edit again. It will fit but it will be tight
