So you have to assume the worst case, which means with a fan in the front you loose 25mm reducing the max length for the graphicscard to 265mm.
Then you loose 38mm for a rad.
So its 227mm max.
Meaning the Asus GTX760-DC2-2GD5 (not to be confused with other Asus GTX760 Cards) is the highest end Gpu that can be fitted if you want a 240 rad in the front. Luckily you can fit two of them (if you use a matx board) which leaves you with enough performance to run recent games at resolutions slightly above 1080p.

Didn't spot the GTX 780 installed alongside a H100i with push/pull fans, which still had around 15mm-20mm clearance?
