That sucks. I've never had any accidents of this kind myself, I guess it must be more common with Mini ATX boards like yours. Looking at the photo of your motherboard it doesn't look to me like there's any less space there than on any other motherboard that I've seen. If the video card doesn't fit there, where else would it fit..

....it being an old video card that you bought 2nd hand.. isn't there a way that you can hack off a piece? What's the metal part? Is it a heatsink? With a little luck maybe it can be modified or swapped.

You'd have to post measurements of the video card. err, the space where the video card is going.
