I need to know if this GPU will fit in my case.

Also, will my CPU bottleneck my GPU

Comment and advice is appreciated

Thanks!

That 290 has poor reviews on both Amazon and Newegg. So does that mobo.

And you can get a better cpu cooler for that price.

I can tell your going for a red themed rig, but your choice of parts aren't the best in their category. You may have to make some sacrifices.

I switched some parts out now (Different GPU, CPU fan, with different mobo)

I heard that removing a hard drive bay should make large graphics cards fit.

Better?

As for your questions, make it fit and maybe. I wouldn't mate a 290 to less than a AMD 8 core TBH.
