Hi guys, I am trying to install my new MSI Radeon HD 6670 in my HP pavillion p6300uk. I have removed a couuple of my rear case bays but it won't fit in - I think because the PCI- Express port is lower than the case bay.I REALLY need some help from you guys if that's ok.

Here are a few pictures of my motherboard, case bays and graphics card on flickr:

It looks from the picture like the slot is not aligned properly, which is not uncommon with HP. Your options are basically to mechanically alter the back of the chassis (with a dremmel) or, since their MOBO's are ATX, simply buy an inexpensive chassis and transfer all the components over.

I had a similar HP desktop and i had to use the single slot 6670.

Thanks for your reply, but oh crap. It's my mum's computer and my dad was helping me install it. He has lots of tools and I'm sure he has a dremel but I'm pretty sure he wouldn't let me do this, or even him do it since it could be so easily damaged. And I don't know if he would let me get a new case for it and transfer all the components over because it would be too much hassle :(  - But I will ask him and see what he says.

Dual slot cards in prebuilts are often troublesome.
