My System Specs

Default Will another graphic card fit?

On my Intel BOXDX58SO2 motherboard will I be able to put another ASUS ENGTX560 TI DCII TOP/2DI/1GD5. One pci slot is to close to the graphic card and the other if I put a card into it looks like it might cover the jumper and buttons. Is that alright?

I used to have SLI 460's close together, only way the top cars would breathe was removing the cards shroud.
Dont think it will work for you, those are pretty big coolers.

I guess I have to let it cover the power switch then to give it enough room.

The motherboard has 3 PCI-e slots right? You could one card on one end and the second card at the other. I'm sure you'll have no prblems
