Re: New Build
IF, you get a 5870 then definitely get a full tower, I wasnt saying you have to get the Azza Solano or the Silverstone Raven, i was just recommending them., with the 850 watt psu the cables wont get in the way of anything, you can just stick them through the cable managment holes in the case or just bunch them up by using cable ties, i highly doubt that any psu you get would have so many cables that it would block things you need to get to. I'm pretty sure the card will fit in any full tower case you get (definently the silverstone raven because the mobo is rotated 90 degrees on the inside, so the card would be vertical in the case instead of horizontal) by getting a mid tower case you're making a gamble whether it will fit or not however.
