"Tight fix" or Tight fit? Are you talking about the memory slots being so close to where the card will be? I had an old ECS board(yes, I know they are POS's) and as long as I installed the ram before putting in the card it was fine.

I had to swap out the sata cables for right angled ones to let the card seat.
The power supply is about a centimetre longer than the original one, so there's not much room there.
EDIT: was going to make a new thread for this, but it can stay here. Unless people want to swap cable terror stories.
