I was aware of PCI-e compatibility, but I did not know to what degree the difference in speed might affect the GPU.

I got this one http://www.norcotek.com/product/rpc-4220/ it was difficult finding EEB cases. Depending on the noise it makes, there's a braket that I can switch in it to change the 4 80mm fans with 3 120mm fans. In anycase, I wanted a case that has wide support for boards (CEB, EEB, ATX and mini ATX) so later on I can update the components and not have to reinvenst in the case. > I would also get front drive bay HDD enclosures that have a fan > otherwise your drives will get hot inside the case and be a pain to > service. > this one does not have a fan, I'll add a braket if I see a need, but I think it'll be alright with the 6 fans it has. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
