As long as that didn't hit your PSU then you could SLI the triple slot on your board. If you can you get me a link to your case then I can tell you whether or not it will work.

I have NZXT Phantom...
At this point, I'm leaning towards friend of friend selling his 2 month old EVGA gtx 570 for $310, or i was going to buy one of the MSI TWIN Frzor on OCN sales for $315...

Just better hope nothing goes wrogn with the EVGA card, as you would have to go through the friend of a friend to RMA it, and the 570s seem to die a every so often.

All the more reason to go with the Asus Direct CUII with it's more and beefier power phases, 8 vs 6.

After looking at your case, there is a little bit of space past the normal 7 expansion slots before the PSU but not enough to call it a full slot that the bottom triple slot Asus would need. It's possible that it may fit but I can't say just from looking at it. What I would recommend doing though is getting at least one Asus Direct CU II for the first slot, this would do two things, first it would allow you to test fit it yourself to see if you could fit two of the Asus which would be the best case scenario. Second, even if your case + mobo combination would not allow you to SLI two triple slot Asus cards then you would still have one for the top card which is usually hotter than the bottom, but with the triple slot cooler on the Asus it would keep the temperatures on the top card much better, maybe even better than the bottom card. In that situation if the triple slot doesn't fit in the bottom then the second card that you picked up later for SLI would have to be a dual slot, but like I said the bottom card is usually cooler anyway.

Hope that wasn't worded too confusingly, I did the best I could.

eVGA over anything else, including Asus. Customer support is in another stratosphere.

Regarding the EVGA warranty and customer service of a just a reference design card, I'm reminded of a quote from Tommy Boy

Tommy: 'Course it does. Why shouldn't it? Ya figure you put that little box under your pillow at night, the Guarantee Fairy might come by and leave a quarter, am I right, Ted?

Ted Nelson: What's your point?

Tommy: The point is, how do you know the fairy isn't a crazy glue sniffer? "Buildin' model airplanes!" says the little fairy, well, we're not buying it. He sneaks into your house once, that's all it takes. The next thing you know, there's money missing off your dresser and your daughter's knocked up, I've seen it a hundred times.

Ted Nelson: But why do they put a guarantee on the box?

Tommy: Because they know all they sold ya was a guaranteed piece of ****. That's all it is, isn't it? Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it guaranteed, I will. I've got spare time. But for now, for your customer's sake, for your daughter's sake, ya might wanna think about buying a quality product from ASUS.
