Hello,

Anyone know if a 8800GT will fit into this Mini ATX case? It really looks like it would fit to me. Are the 8800GT's wider than a 8600 GT? Or just thicker & longer?

BTW, that big grey ribbon cable is no more, I have put a SATA hard drive in this case.

Looks like you could fit any card in there. If you run into problems, then look for a shoehorn or hammer.

Should fit, but the extra heat won't. :(

I do have two Vantec fans, one pulling air in (front) and one pulling air out (back). I can always keep the side of the case cracked opened too.

There cards put off that much heat hey?

I'm also looking for a new power supply, the one I have now is a puney 250w or 300w max, have any suggestions? I would like to keep the price no more than $70. But if $75 get a much better supply than I will do it.

I would look at something more expensive for a power supply[you don't want to Scrimp on the PSU quality to save money]
Also if you get a better PSU you can use it again when you upgrade,so get a PSU that is more then you need so you have some headroom to play with.

I understand, but remember. this is a mini ATX case & I am not doing SLI. I will only have one hard drive & one DVD burner, dont think I will ever get a "sound card"
