Hi,

I am about to build my first gaming rig and need some advice on this case.

The Case I picked is a Cooler Master Storm Enforcer but noticed that there is only 270mm of space to fit a graphics card.

I am getting a Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 OC which is 280mm in length.

I saw that you can remove the HDD Cage to fit large GPUs, but my question is where are the HDDs going to fit?

Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question but I'm new to PC building,

Thanks in Advance!

This picture should give you a good idea how much room there is for a video card with the top HDD cage removed. Besides the lower HDD cage you can also put HDDs in the empty 5.25" drive bays with a 3.5" to 5.25 adapter bracket.
There is also the 2.5" drive cage next to the lower 3.5" drive cage.
