I'm in the middle of doing my first build. I'm using a HAF 932 case and trying to install the Radeon 6870, however the plate for the mounting screws is causing the card to eject on one side when the motherboard is screwed in. This build is getting a little rougher than I'd like so any input on how to get around this would be appreciated.

Here's a look at the overall build:

Causing the card to eject on one side? If the motherboard is mounted correctly in the case using standoff's in the correct holes, the card should fit just fine.
