Will I be able to fit a R9 280X into a NZXT 410 Tempest?

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/25T2s This is outrageously frustrating since I felt so close to completing my build and buying the parts, but now I'm skeptical that it will actually fit. Looking at the reviews for the 410, I get mixed reports of just how much clearance you get. Depending on some reports, I may get a maximum of 30mm clearance, if any. Is that even enough for the power cables? On top of that, a reviewer mentioned a possible width issue, not that I can find the width of most cards!

If I must swap out this otherwise very appealing case, I'm open to suggestions. I'm willing to go another ~$15 over in terms of budget if necessary. Better yet, if anyone knows of any better+roomier cases for the same price, I'd welcome the input.

If it's shorter or the same length as a 760 you will be fine as other people used a 760 in the case and posted it here.
