Thanks in advance all.

Any idea if a dual slot graphics card, such as this 7850: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Will fit into a single slot micro ATX motherboard, such as this MSI Micro ATX board:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I'm concerned the battery, chipset heatsink or other motherboard components will hinder the dual slot card from physically fitting into the PCI slot.

Also, even if the card will physically fit, could I run into problems where, since the card is hanging over and blocking the chipset heatsink it causes the chipset to overheat?

Thanks!

It should fit fine over everything and not cause any overheating.
