I'm not sure. In such a moment of indecision I'd rather be safe than sorry. Go with the Antec 900.

thats what she said *eh-hem*

It's a relativley low end case, and i've heard that the 9800's are pretty large!

It'll all fit in there and work fine.

But i'd go for the bigger 900 just for the better air flow for your CPU and BFG 9800GT GPU's. You wanna keep them nice and cool...

It should fit fine in the Antec 300. As for cooling, just pop in a couple of 120mm fans up front and that case will have more than enough airflow and stay nice and cool. You could even install a 120mm fan in the side panel to help cool the cards.
