Hey guys,

Recently I fried my gaming computer, I am now on an old rig, with an ASUS A8N5X motherboard and an old AMD processor. I live and breath my computer so I want to make this work until I can afford to dish out $600 for a new motherboard and processor. Here's my problem though, I had a 9800 GX2 (EVGA) that I was using in my old computer, when placing it on this board, the NForce 4's fan does not allow my 9800 GX2's fat [bleep] to get all the way into the PCIe slot. Is there any way around this? A cheap low profile fan more than what is on there, or a possible way to extend the PCIe slot or anything, I'm reaching for any kind of answer because I don't want to play on my old GeForce 7950 :)

They are called Riser Cards or Riser Boards:

That's an interesting link, CrazyIvan... Do you think any of those specific search results will be helpful?

I'm not so sure myself...

No, they're not helpful at all. The only one that is compatible is the second one, but that's just going to turn it sideways, so it's not going to be high enough anyway.

That said, the specs say only for use with a specific motherboard, so no go anyway...

But it was good thinking.

------------------------------------------------------------

To the OP - I think you'll just have to play on the older card in the meantime.

Cheers
