I'm sure you can put two video cards in there easily. The description says that it was designed to be the ultimate gamer's case.

If you think that case is good, wait till you get a load of this MONSTER of a case!!! Check out the superior cooling. This is my dream case and I will hump it to death:

4 fans total with 2x 80mm and 2x 120mm case fans. The fans are focused on GPU and CPU cooling as you can see from the setup. Very nice.

Personally, I think the Antec 900 is a waste of money if you don't know how to use a Dremel. If you do, cutting holes for wires is one of the best things you can do for it. A third drive cage with 120MM fan helps too so you have three 120MM fans on the front. like mine. But if you do go this route, you have to get an external CD/DVD drive, or mod the bottom to fit a slimline.

The Antec Nine Hundred could fit 2 graphics cards yes. Cooling is very good, so I wouldn't worry.

As for wires, mine aren't exactly clean (Not a modular), but I found spaces for all wires to go that aren't in the way

You may be happier going with a full tower case. Check out the Cooler Master Stacker830 and the new Cooler Master Cosmos. The Cosmos was featured in maximum PC and they were really impressed with it. A little pricey but I think it worth it. I'm probally going to buy one myself shortly.

As for the 900 i've heard alot of complaints of lack of space between the end of the card and the harddrive cages. Your going to generate a lot of heat between those cards. Thats my 2's

Yeah. They do offer a bridge for the graphics cards to attach it to the hard drive caddy.
I had to take the 120mm fan holder off where the hard drives are to fit everything, but it runs cool without an extra fan there. Still, I may move the hard drives up, and add it again.

It will work fine when you OC a Q6600 naturally within tolerable temps, but an aftermarket cooler will bring that temp down SIGNIFICANTLY!!! With that in mind, yes. Replace the cooler.

the antec cooling wise beats that case for 2 reasons
1 huge fan on top to let out hot air
2 power supply is on bottom sucking out the hot air from the video cards
