    Default PCI Space too small on Case?

    My brother has been building a new PC, reusing the graphics card and other bits from the old pc.
    Anyway he has finished trying to stick the old graphics card in and is not having any luck.... it seems the pci space on the case is too smallin a couple of dimensions... height and width.
    Noticed the height on other PCI slots which came with the mobo.

    The case is Super Flower Rhythmic Blue ATX Case Top & Side Window & Front Neon Bubble Tubes from eBuyer (now not showing).

    What we want to know is has anyone ever seen this, or you think he;s done something wrong?

    TIA

    Case used: http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=50148

    Looking at the reviews, seems something must have been done wrong.... but god knows what.

    I know what PCI and AGP slot are and what the cards look like, so can't be nothing wrong with them. I have no idea what graphics card it is as it's whipped out my old system (getting new one though).
    Not too sure what ISA is though?

    Have you looked at the little posts that go under the mobo? are they there or too tall/short if the graphics card fitted your old one they should fit the new one

    ISA is a really large slot and old! The one on the far left of the picture. <img src='http://www.cyberresearch.com/images/products/1048467517.600.jpg'>

    Well as far as i know, there is no ISA slot on the mobo, so that can't be the problem!
    I'm getting a new video card for the pc to see if that helps, anyone got any suggestions for under 40? If no joy witht that, I'll get a new case or something.

    I'd say go for an XFX nVidia GeForce FX 5200 128MB for 46.44 from EBuyer http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=54889, a great card for it's price. If worst comes to worst and you need a new case i've had my eye on these for a while. http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=54599 amazing case for it's price and it's even pre-modded with a 300WATT PSU and a window with case fan.

    Good Luck,
