    May I remind you that the new AMD graphic card are about to be released in the next few weeks. If you do not have the VGA's yet I might just hold on.

    Now to answer your question.

    If you are selecting 3 slot or 2.5 slot VGA's then you are going to struggle to get the RAIDr card in the bottom slot.

    umm i would do water cooled but i'm unsure of my skills putting it together so i'm worried. I dont want to ruin anything if i mess up. Would it fit even if it was tight though?

    It is for that reason (will it fit ) that I suggested that reference cards are used for multi card configurations.

    It will not fit, two DCII cards and a RAIDR card
