dont those blue sata cables have an L shape connector on the other end?....what card is that in there now is it a 5770? If the cables dont have the L shape on the other end then get some new cables too...and it will be tight but it will fit just fine

Get yourself some Ultra Low Profile Latching Right/Left Angle SATA Cables.

A Radeon HD 6870 is 2.54 cm (1 inch) longer than a Radeon HD 6850.
