I just installed a new video card in my Dell Optiplex SFF,and everything works great, but the measurements I was given for the video card are way off and it is bigger than I expected. It's sticking  at least 2-3 inches out of the computer case which makes it impossible to put the top cover back on.  I've been looking around for a new case, but I'm not sure which ones are compatible. My main concern is the front power button, earphone and usb port, because they are all connected as one piece. Any suggestions would  be much appreciated.

Maybe I am wrong but I think there is no chance you will manage to fit brand name motherboard in any different case. Every time I tried that some problem would show as non standard motherboard screw positions, non standard connectors and etc. Not saying that you cannot do modifications to other case and do that but is it worth of time and trouble?
