not too sure if the dual cards would really work with this case either even though all the specs say they will...but for what it is this case seems pretty cool..

The Vulcan is a good case... Handle makes the case portable... you will have room for the SLI\Xfire of your choice... cable management is lacking, but nothing a dremel cant help you with

Thanks for the input. I did look at whatever builds i could find floating around youtube with this case and as long as you use a modular psu its not too bad... I couldnt honestly see myself investing this kind of loot into a micro rig with a budget case but if i won it in the contest it would be pretty sweet.

If im putting my own cash into a rig though its gonna have a feature rich case like the 810 i bought.
but it was fun to design this micro beast...the other case of choice in this size bracket is the thermaltake armor a30 which seems pretty nice too but less efficient...
