    Will these parts fit in my case?

    I'm just about to buy the rest of my parts, but I wanna make sure they fit.

    Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811146077
    Dimensions: 19.51" x 7.68" x 17.32"
    VGA clearance: 230mm w/ hard drive, 330mm w/o hard drive
    Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157335
    Dimensions: 8.9" x 7.2"

    Video card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102983
    Dimensions: 10.24" x 4.45" x 1.38"

    I have no idea what the VGA clearance means. I need a hard drive, so why is the 330mm even relevant? The video card's width dimension (which I assume is what the VGA clearance is talking about) is between 230 and 330 mm.

    VGA stands for Video Graphics Array. It means graphics card. VGA clearance usually refers to how long of a graphics card you can fit into the case.

    You can remove the HDD bay to allow for bigger graphics cards. Some cases split the HDD cage into two parts so you can fit a large graphics card AND have some HDD bays.

    The 7870 is 260mm so you'd probably have to remove the HDD cage. You can always put the HDD wherever you want, it doesn't "have" to be in a cage. HDDs are just more secure there. There are also 5.25" to 3.5" adapters that allow you to convert one of your optical drive bays into a hard drive bay. These adapters go for $3-15.
