As it says in the title, I am looking to get the EVGA 01G-P3-1284-AR GeForce GTX 280 SSC Edition 1GB video as time goes on and the price drop [info here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814130368] but the problem I am reading with reviews is that it is huge, so I am looking for a case that would fit 9(2) of theses huge things and not blow up my house. Also I would require naturally a monster power supply. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Those cards are huge, you will often need an extended ATX case to fit it. If you wish to fit two of these monsters into your PC, you would be better off with a 1000 watt PSU. The CORSAIR CMPSU-1000HX 1000W PSU comes highly recommended.

If you're looking for a pretty big case, an Antec nine-hundred should serve you well. Frys.com has one on sale for $70 and free shipping. A very great deal, and I'm almost tempted to buy it (I need to refrain from spending money though :thumbsup:) http://shop1.frys.com/product/4991611;jses...CH:MAIN_RSLT_PG
