    Computer case

    Hello, i recently bought a new graphics card (Radeon HD 6950, 2 GB version).

    Sadly, the information i got for the dimensions of the card was wrong, so my old case isn't fitting. At the time i'm running with the graphic card without a cover on and go with it. But i'm thinking of changing the case out with a new one of Cooler Master brand, as the cooling options of my current is pretty awful.

    Can anyone find a case (My resident is in Denmark, Europe, so i would prefer the shipping is in Europe, so i don't have to pay ridicolous amounts of shipping.) that'd fit my graphics card (Radeon HD 6950, 2 GB version) and great cooling, as my mathematics in dimensions is poor!

    Thanks in advance!

    Do you have a budget in mind for your new case? With so many options out there a solid budget would really help us narrow down the search for ya.

    If you want a case with really nice airflow you should take a look at Corsaid Obsidian 800D I think it's called, let me look it up.

    Edit: Yep, that's the one. You can have a total of 6 fans in it excluding gpu / cpu heatsink fans (3 top, 1 back, 1 @ HDD's, 1 at bottom to flow it better)

    Fixed, googled 900D and it came up with the case I'm currently using. Sorry

    But yeah, get the 800D!
