Hello,
I'm operating on a N-Alvorix-RS880-uATX (on a HPE-500y PC) motherboard. The video card really sucks so I'm looking into an upgrade. (specifically this card: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...) I'm not sure if the card will fit because of the large fans, and there is a PCI-e x1 slot above the 16x slot. Will the card fit?

the fans will be on the left side of the board as it is depicted in this link http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Docume... It looks as though it should fit fine... that is depending on your case.

it is a dual slot card though so it will definitely block the pci-e x1 port next to it and if you're using pcie mini you will probably want the mini card in prior to putting the vid card in cause it may get in the way of installation (unless it's a half size card)
