I need a case to fit my GPU

Postby hercules71185 » Sat Mar 30, 2013 8:02 pm

I don't want a full tower because it won't fit under my TV. How do you search for a case that will fit a large GPU? Is there an easy way? I just ordered a Video card and I'm coming to realize it won't be fitting in my case. I got the Asus GTX 680 CU2 and it's a foot long. So what sites let you search by card size?

The smallest cases that fit that card off the top of my head are the BitFenix Prodigy or the Silverstone Sugo. Why such a powerful card to hook it to a TV or are you using your TV as the primary monitor? Measure the dimensions of the space/opening you have and use those to measure against cases in on Newegg. I assume too that you are going mITX. Would that be correct?

Well it's my primary monitor. I got overkill just so I don't have to worry about upgrading for a while. A mid ATX is fine, I just bought the nzxt m59 case and it only supports a 10.5 inch card. I'm currently using an ass 660ti cu 2 and it hardly fits as of now. I didn't even think about it being a full inch longer.

So I figured it out. But man how easy would it be if someone just made a site that allowed you to pick a gpu size as an option in a search. I mean seriously. I'd say 50% of cases don't have it listed and the ones that do it's at the bottom hidden in specs. Maybe it's not a huge issue usually. But, I'd buy from a site that had it wit the headaches I've had to deal with.

I ended up with the Nvidia edition of the Thermaltake V case. Hopefully it's hear soon. I hate having to wait so long after spending so much.
