    its hard to say as you really need to look at each card individually.
    e.g some ultra budget cases have a gap where other cases would have hd racks meaning that they can funnily accomodate bigger cards

    I got a £10 cheapo case that can fit any card, but can't link it as it's against forum rules.

    The Coolermaster 33X series looks like it can fit the 5870 purely because not all of those drive bays are going to be used up! (In my case, anyway! Pardon the pun :p)

    thanks, my budget well for case is that it i can fit in my card but i dont want to spend a lot on it. my current case is pretty good but its only that i need to get the 5870 which has made me look for a case. As i said the cheapest is the one i will go after.
