yes it does fit up to 290mm cards

 

but pick the sapphire Nitro GPU over the Asus

 

 

Asus make crap AMD cards

Budget? Uses? Currency? Location? Operating System? Peripherals? Monitor? Use PCPartPicker wherever possible.

Get the 280 Nitro.

Also don't buy the Corsair Air 240.....please don't. Unless you want to watercool with AIOs. Then go ahead.

It feels so cheap with all the plastic and flimsy metal parts. I had it for like three days and that was the worst case I ever had. I love the look, but airflow is not really great and build quality is inferior to many cheaper cases.

ALSO: Many GPUs won't fit due to their height opposed to length. Lengthwise you can basically fit anything in there, but even a reference card will cause the VGA power cables to bend on the side window. So anything taller than a reference card is a very tight fit or not possible at all.

I have never been so disappointed with a case.
