Will x1900xt/x1800xt fit in epox "EP-9NPA+Ultra

Will the larger ati cards fit this motherboard or will they run into the north bridge fan?

Also -- has this fan been reliable or has it a tendency to fail?

Last but least for my build would I be better off with this board or the "EP-9NPA3 ultra (or non ultra) ?

(my build includes 1 hd, 1 optical, 2 1gb sticks of ram, and pci sound card)
(most likely 3700 san diego with stock heat sink but maybe opty 144 or 146) over clock will be at most 20% but proably less.

People have experienced them making buzzing noises very shortly. Which doesn't actually imply failure. Just annoyance. You have to remember that it's vertically oriented and sleeve bearing. With that said, I put a few drops of oil in one of mine and it's been doing much better.

I don't mean this as a slight against Epox as I'm not really expecting anything better for the price I paid, and there are a heck of a lot more important criteria to choose a motherboard by.

My 7800GTX blocks my chipset fan on my DFI UT SLI DR. IT doesn't make to much of a differance about 2C.
