PCI 4x slot extensor?

Hello there,

I bought a little USB 3.0 Pci card which uses that little PCI slot (4x I think).

However, my VGA won't let me use this card, because it takes physicaly the whole space with its fan.

Is there anykind of extension mechanism to overcome this issue? Or maybe use those bigger PCI slots?

Thanks a lot.

    you can put it in a spare PCIe x16 slot (the long ones, like your GPU is using now) but you cant use PCI.

    And yes they make risers and ribbons and all kinds of those things.
