Hi guys,

I recently purchased a MSI R7970 Lightning graphic card and I'm using the NZXT Phantom 410 chasis.

The graphic card is kind of too long for me to fit it in, I have to remove the hard disk cage in order to install it. The thing is, it's just slightly protruding and I may be able to force it in and use it (already tried, kind of got some scratches on the backplate of the graphic card).

The thing is, I need to use the HDD cage to place my SSD. Is there any way I can do to fit everything in? Or do any of you know of any components/hardware I can purchase for me to be able to fit both the cage and card?

theres nothing you can purcahse that will let you fit it in as far as i know, my freind had the same problem with a 7970, and he ended up litreally cutting a part of his case in order for the 7970 to fit in.
you can maybe move your hard disk cage, and create an alternative sitting for ur hard disk, it needs to be "in the air" and not placed directly on the bottom of ur pc case, and of course, it needs to be tightened.
but that might not be the right thing to do, so what iam saying is, be creative.

there's also external pci-e slots, but i would not recommend that.
