Hello to everyone,

I wonder if I can use a PNY video card (PCI express) with slim design in a normal sized PC case. I guess there will be a gap in the bracket, but that shouln't be a problem. Right?

Thank you so much.

It should be possible.

The only way you'll get a low profile card to fit is to bend the 'L' at the top straight, otherwise the cards edge connector will not reach the PCI-E slot.
I do not recommend you try to straighten it out, there's a good chance you'll damage the circuit board.
