Video Card Work with Motherboard?

I have a GTX 670, and looking to switch to Intel, the Motherboard im looking at is an ASUS ROG Maximus V Gene - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131830, and I want to know if the long GTX 670 will get in the way of the RAM slots? The GTX 670 is a Zotac and seems quite large and want to know if it'll interfere with a Micro ATX motherboard in the first PCIe slot. and if so does using the card in the 2nd PCIe any different than the 1st?

  1. It shouldn't get in the way, but it might be a little hard to seat/unseat the RAM.

    For that price, you can get this motherboard right here, which I think is a better option: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131820

    I have the older version (Z68) of that MB and it rocks! the layout is mostly the same. I am running a GTX 590 (much bigger than the 670) and I have no issues with it interfering with RAM. if i remember right, the ram bank clips closest to the GPU are fixed, only the ones opposite actually un-clip.

    I am running 4x4GB or the low profile Vengeance
