I initially was going to get the Deepcool Tesseract SW case, but have since decided that I will pay a little more for a more modular case. The Thermaltake Core V31 is the case I now want to buy; however, I get a compatibility note when selecting it with my GPU - XFX R9 280X.
From the pics here - http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/Chassis/Mid_Tower_/Core/C_00002469/Core_V31_/Gallery.htm - it appears that the HDD cage can be moved and mounted mid-case rather than on the floor and I think the compatibility thingy here at ppp is assuming a mid-level placement rather than placing the cage on the floor.
The GPU is 11.61" or 295 mm. From the pics above, it appears that if I place the hdd cage at the bottom, there should be sufficient room to install the card and the card will go above the hdd cage.
Am I missing something in how I am thinking about this?
