Hi guys,
I have an old case from I think 2004. This is the one (http://techreport.com/review/6247/antec-sonata-atx-case) That's the only link I can find with it actually shown. I'm interested in buying this 7970 (http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=67547&vpn=GV-R797OC-3GD&manufacture=Gigabyte&promoid=1645). I'm just wondering if it will fit? If not is there a relatively cheap case you recommend? Thanks!

GPU dimensions -

Height: 126.0 mm
Length: 285.0 mm
Thickness: 38.0 mm

Your case shows that it should measure 463mm, but I would probably measure the inside anyways, due to drive bays and such.

Your GPU dimensions are on the NCIX page. The case dimensions are on Antec's website. Just Google your case...

I have a big ass case and the 7970 I have barely fit. Driver bays on the inside made it close
