    Good luck bump - Best money I've spent on a GPU in a while. 1080p mostly maxed in everything will be within your reach.

    Assuming its a 790 mini tower (since you're not asking for a low profile 970 I assume it is)
    The rear fans a 92mm however if you're not using the HDD bay you could drill it out (it's riveted in) and front mount the radiator.
    Depending on your modding skill it may be more of a pain/effort than its worth to you.

    As a secondary note, you likely need to look for a card that has the power plugs on the end of the card rather than the side, the case side may not clear with one or two 6 pin power connectors sticking upwards (unless you have some kind of right angle connectors).
    That might limit you to a 960 series card rather than 970/980 that are longer and to my knowledge don't offer a card with end power connectors.
    (also watch the length of the card less it interfere with the HDD bay)

    I have a couple GALAX 970 Hall of Fame cards that I'm going to post relatively soon. If you're interested in one of them, let me know. I'm searching the for sale posts now to check value but I'm thinking somewhere around $150 per each.

    I got the case from a member out here.He replaced the PSU and removed the HDD cage so installing the cards would not be a problem.Also I am using the 2nd 5.25 bay to house my SSD.

    Solid deal for sure. Much cheaper than a lot of the used prices I've seen as well. (y)
