7970 won't fit! Gah! Help w/ Mobo/Case!

Hey all. I just received my 7970 today (woo) anyway, I came across the problem. My 7970 won't fit on my mobo. it's blocked @ all 3 PCI ports by the SATA cables, one of those weird things @ the south end of the Mobo, and then a reset switch. (this is my mobo http://www.amazon.com/ASRock-MB-Z68X4G3-Intel-Z68-Motherboard/dp/B005FE52X6/ref=sr_1_6?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1328488274&sr=1-6)

Also, it turns out, it won't fit in my computer case as well, even if I was to get another Mobo. So I have to get another case as well. (I think, unless anyone can help.- this is my case http://www.amazon.com/Crafted-Black-Steel-Chassis-CS-NT-LEXA-S/dp/B002OEBILU/ref=sr_1_19?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1328488356&sr=1-19)


So anyone have any suggestions for a Mobo/case combo? Looking to keep it under $350 total. My preferred case would be this... http://www.amazon.com/NZXT-Crafted-Tower-Steel-Chassis/dp/B003WE9WQO/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1328488430&sr=1-1

So ya! Thanks in advance. I'm not going to be trying to crossfire this (at least at the time being; if I were, it'd be a year or so down the road) For what it's worth, my CPU is intel.

    looked like it would have worked, however it turns out I jumped the gun =P. The middle section worked after all, just needed to remove my sound card for it to fit. have to live with onboard for now! small price to pay however!
