Anyone know what to do?

Here is my mobo: http://www.overclock.net/attachments/completed-transactions/173505d1285181139-sale-asus-p6td-deluxe-motherboard-dsc09300.jpg

My 2nd and 3rd pcie slots are way at the bottom of the mobo, my 2nd video card goes into that 2nd white one thereby blocking the last 3rd black slot thats right near the base of the case, i can't even fit a pcie extender cable in there. Are there any cheap larger cases that have room on the bottom?

Or should i just cut out the bottom of the case and prop it up on taller legs? thanks for any help. Don't want to remove the mobo and have the whole thing just lying on my desk.

thanks for any help.

*edit, or is there anything that can convert pci-->pcie slot with extender?

Hey mate, it would be easier to just get a PCI-E extender and prop the card outside of the case. If you get a solid extender you are very limited in where you can move the card too. Grab one off ebay or cablesaurus.com

I have the flexible one from cablesaurus, the card just sits way too close to the other empty slot that there isnt any room to stick it in.

How about putting your 2nd card into the black slot, and use your pci-e extender on the white slot?

Bitcoin reminds me of the old Barcode Battler LCD game. People buy completely useless things they actually don't need and hope they can be a winner that way.

because the black slot is too close to the bottom of the case, thats the whole point of this question. no video cards fit in it.

then you should buy a bigger case or build an own one.

Can't you just use extenders for both the second and the third slot?

In hindsight, you should probably have brought  a motherboard that is more easy to use for +3 videocards.

But yeah, I think willebra's suggestion is the way to go for this situation.
