ok found out a NVIDIA 8800GTX will fit in the case and could do SLI if there was a SLI matx board.

1. Make sure you get a modular psu,they make it so much easier and tidier and better cable management-(you only attach the cables you need for it), to have in a SFF case. 2. And get a Sata DVD burner for easier and tidier cable management. 3. Gigabyte GA-G33M-DS2R, Intel Q9300, 2 x 2 Gig ddr 2 to give you 4 gig for dual channel,so now or later you can go 8 gig dual channel as well., ATI Radeon HD 4870 1 gig ddr 5 graphics card coming out very soon!!!, Enermax Galaxy 1000 Watt ATX Modular Power Supply Unit-(heaps of power for future upgrades as well)., Pioneer DVR-215 20x SATA Dvdrw, LG L246WH 24"LCD monitor, 4ms 1920x1200 DVI-(for 1080p movie watching with HDMI as well)!!!!

1. 9800GTX 512mb Graphic card length is 267mm. 2. Yes use GOOGLE. 3. Personally I don't buy any Asustex (Asus) motherboards anymore as I have had bad experience with them in the past.Once bitten twice shy!!!
