No Room For Extra Storage

My recently built PC has an MSI H61M-E33/W8 mobo with an XFX Radeon HD 7850 2GB graphics card. Everything in the build worked out fine other than the size of the graphics card. The back end of the card is covering up the SATA1 and SATA2 ports on the motherboard, limiting me to using the third and fourth ports only. Is there a way to work around this to add more storage?

If there is no possible way the bend the cables under the card (not sure about your clearance) you can look into one of these.

Make sure that you get a PCIeX1 card as that is the only other PCIe port you have available on your board.

Thanks. That's exactly what I was looking for. I guessed there was something I could do, but wasn't sure if my motherboard would support it. I'll definitely be looking to get one of those then.
