Hi, today I went out and bought a G-force 6200 128 MB AGP Graphics card. I have two problems:

1. Where the output plugs (s video and VGA) are on the silver part of the card on the end is a metal piece at the bottom slightly longer then the card. When trying to plug the card into the AGP slot, the AGP slot on my computer is not high enough to fit. ( I have a horizontal case, not a tower.)Is there a way to make this fit?

2. If problem 1 can be solved, my expansion riser that holds my USB ports can not be plugged in at the same time as the graphics card because the case on top of the expansion card sits too low. Is there a way to raise this or a way to remove the metal on top of the PCI card? there is about a 2 inch unnecessary portion that if it were removed would allow the Card to fit.

Pics will be posted soon of my CPU and graphics card if this is allowed??

I ran into your first problem one time with a compaq that had a case like that, the only way I got the card to fit was to cut part of the back panel of the case away with a dremel tool. Not something I recommend but it can be done, but lets see the pics first

I am not worried about the original case fitting as I am going to cover it with a plastic see through case with air holes on the side. My only worry is about getting the card to fit with my current hardware.
