Here's the case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Here's the graphics card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

No matter how I move it, it can't fit into the motherboard. The back of the case is in the way, and I can't figure out why. I've posted the build on here before, and nobody mentioned the fact that it wouldn't fit, so I'm thinking I've done something wrong.

Are you serious? I've posted this build on here and several other websites. Why the hell wouldn't someone bother to tell me this?

I agree. You'll need a different case. See links below. Is your HDD interfering any way possible?

Can you upload a pic to this forum? It is kinda important to warn others, but we'd like to see too.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKthB8C6exs . you shouldnt have a problem actually, there is a lot of space for any gpu. what problem would you have with the back of the case?have you mounted the mobo correctly. there should be a gap for the gpu to properly fit in.

You could just saw off some of the metal that is in the way off the hdd cages wouldnt be hard.

Would that case you linked fit my current graphics card? I'm not going to get another graphics card, and I sure as hell don't want to make this mistake again.

Also, I can't put up any pictures because of various camera problems.

I'd do this if I wasn't 14 and living in a place with no tools.

As I Said Get A New Case Like The Fractal Design Define R4 Or NZXT H440

Do you know of any cheaper cases that would fit? I've gone over budget already and would prefer to spend as little money as possible at this point.

Haha i did a lot more complicated things than this when i was 14 ... you could just get some sandpaper and just sand it off its aluminum would take awhile but it can be done even without tools.

I was linking the specs on the case you provided. I am not suggesting you buy this case since it is the one you have already.

I don't know how the GPU doesn't fit. It should. Are you putting it in the correct slot?

I wouldn't recommend the Corsair 200R since it seems to be about same price as 300R, yet the 300R cools wayyyy better.

It turns out that there were these little strips of metal that I needed to unscrew to get it to fit. I feel pretty stupid, but thanks for the help.

you should not be having this problem. there is plenty of room in the 210 for a graphics card. the r9-270 is not a long or large gpu anyways. what exactly is it hanging up on?

It seemed impossible that your GPU wouldn't fit. Pics would have helped, but I understand camera issues...
