    Yes.

    The card is 9 inches long, and that's only about half the length of the case.

    Plus it holds a normal atx motherboard which is 9 inches wide.

    You've got me puzzled on that one though.

    You can get a nice eVga 7950gt for $205 shipped, after $15 rebate.

    I know, but you said the 8800 was 60 over the price of a 7950gt.

    It's closer to $200 difference.

    The 8800 is definitely the card to go with either way.

    No problem, I was half wondering if you hadn't found an amazing deal on the 8800 card.

    I found a pic of that case with a motherboard in it.

    If you look at the red line at the edge of the case you can see there's
    a good inch of space between the mobo (ASUS A8N-SLI Premium ATX) and the drive cage.

    That means there's at least 10" of space for the 9" 8800 card.
