Im not an expert in these fields (still learning here), might be a stupid question to some of you pros out there, but this thing would fit in a Asus Rampage IV Extreme, right? My case is Corsair Obsidian 650 D

I'd like to see a versus match between this and the MSI 580 Lightning.  I think that if Asus is really cherry picking GPUs, it will make all the difference when the overclocking starts.  Though the Lightning manages to stay chill and is only a duel slot card like most high end graphics cards.

This card is obnoxious.

Well, I'm pretty sure my ridiculously massive FT02 and P67-UD4-B3 could take it ... But I don't think my wallet could =/

When we got the box, we thought Asus had shipped us a motherboard by mistake

Would this work well with the G1 Sniper 2 motherboard, in a Atec 900 case (first version, not that weird revision)?  I'm looking at both a part of my christmas/new year gift/rebuild.

Lets see... Antec 900 for $99:

Dimmensions: 18.40" x 8.10" x 19.40"

3 ODD bays

6 HDD bays

No behind mobo cable management.

Cooler master 922 for $99:

Dimmensions: 22.20" x 10.00" x 19.70"

5 ODD Bays

5 HDD Bays

Behind mobo cable management.

 

Why do u want Antec 900 again?

 

Anyways this is one beast of a card. Please reconsider the cage you want this beast to reside.

the antec 900 was a friggin' awesome case in its hayday, with the killer 220 "Big Boy" fan on top and a mesh/window panel on the side. Keep in mind that that was roughly 3 years ago, when i picked mine up, and since then, large top fans have become commonplace, as has mesh paneling. Most cases will give you more bang for your buck, however the Antec 900 is extremely easy to mod, should you ever want to go that route.
