I've been working on my first build for the past few hours and finally I'm ready to mount the mobo into the case. Unfortunately, I ran into some problems. I already mounted the HDD and the optical drive and I did an external build to make sure that everything was working. My first problem was the case I have has these tiny screws to mount the motherboard and they don't seem to be long enough (I could be doing something completely wrong though). My main problem is with my graphics card, it's very long (msi gtx 660 ti) and the case doesn't let me use the ports on the back of it. I was wondering if I could just knock out a back panel because it seems like it was just there for aesthetic value and it had screws on it that didn't seem to connect anything.

The sooner the help the better.

Thanks--Gilroy

EDIT: Found out the panel could be removed, it was just there for aesthetics, please close this post.
