Dont listen to him. I have seen him post many horrible replies today because he thinks it is funny. He needs to be kicked out. He is not helping at all.
Can you post a picture somehow of the inside of your case? photobucket or alike site. Just upload and paste the link here. That would be awesome.
Can you just cut out a portion of the HDD cage so it is still mounted yet your card fits and HDD can go in a different slot? Or maybe drill some holes in the cage and in the case and bolt it together or rivet it together.
On the bottom of the HDD is probably a circuit board. Make sure not to short any of that out when placed on the floor of the case
