haha yeah, I will get a new camera soon, but I just bought a new DJ controller too (the Pioneer DDJ-SX for those who are interested :P) so a bit low on funds at the moment :P if I don't have a decent camera by my next build I will definitely borrow a friend's DSLR to get some decent pics

Hi there chrisjones
I know it's been a while and your build may have changed a bit, but I am in the process of slowly upgrading the internals of my Node 304 build.

Could you tell me how much room the RM450 PSU left for a graphics card? From what you could see the PSU would severely hinder a full length GFX card?

Thanks in advance

Hey, I just opened up the case and checked for you (haven't opened it up since I built it basically). There is enough space for a medium length card, however it depends on how many ports you've used on the RM for the 12v rail.

I've attached some pictures to show you what I mean, I don't however know why the images are upside down, I have tried rotating them and they still end up like that.

Sorry about the poor cable management, it was quite tricky in that case, but it is possible to do it much better, I just didn't spend the time doing it.

There is a picture of the bare PCIe slot, one with an 8800GX2 (for lols because it's so big it doesn't even fit in the case), and a 9800GT which is medium length, and fits with careful management of cables. There is no way to fit a full length graphics card in there though, so bare that in mind. A reference GTX760 will maybe fit, however I can't be certain of that as I don't have one here to check. I think you could maybe fit a card up to 20cm, but I can't guarantee it.

Thanks so much for checking. That was the impression I'd gotten from your original photos.

Ah well, I will look at alternatives then.

By the way, nice looking set up!

That's alright Yeah, the space inside this case is quite lacking, but considering the size of the case it's not really a surprise! I'm amazed I've managed to fit this much in it tbh haha, I'll definitely have to get around to writing a review for the Node when I get a chance because it is a cracking case!
Thanks dude, there are things I would like to change or update, but can't be done for a while unfortunately due to financial constraints :/ I'd love two or three of the Asus VN279QLB monitors though
If you're looking for a new case that might support a larger graphics card, take a look at the Corsair Obsidian 250D, it's rather similar in looks to the Node, but offers support for much larger graphics cards. Good luck in whatever you decide on!
