Hello, as many recommended, I went ahead and bought the Antec NSK 2480. I was on a budget and bought the following:


Case: Antec NSK 2480 (includes 380 watts PSU): $89

CPU: Intel E5300 oced to: 3.25GHZ: $69

Motherboard: Gigabyte G31m: $54

Video Card: Nvidia 8400GS: $9

Ram: Kingston 2x1GB sticks: $14

Hard Drive: Maxtor 160GB: Pulled from old system


Total Cost: $235


I want something better for gaming and thought what is the best (largest) video card that would fit? I know the better the GPU, the larger the video card would be.

The NSK2480 can accomodate cards up to about 240mm. Most single-GPU ATI 48xx cards fit (although a 4890 might be a tight squeeze), as well as some Nvidia GTS series cards. The GTX cards are usually too long.


Also, there is little room between the top edge of the card and the case's lid, so don't take a card with an exotic cooler where heat pipes stick out on top or the like and make sure that any extra power connectors are located on the short end of the card, not the top.
