Hi folks - I'm a bit worried about whether a PCI card would be placed properly with this setup.

The Prodigy is an ITX case, and the DMUD2700 Atom board is an ITX board so there shouldnt be any issues, but I dont want to drop £60.00 if there's going to be spacing issues. The more and more I look at it the more it looks like the PCI card should be able to be mounted OK, but just wondered if anyone was using one of these and had any issues with them?

Cheers folks.

Would help to know what card you’re going to put in? But as it is any card thats 320mm in length will fit but three of the HDD bays can't be used (the whole cage removed) if you do unless the card is as long as the board.

It's just a standard PCI card, 4 port SATA as this is being used as a low-power server. Im pretty sure it will be fine - I know there's going to be enough space horizontally in the case, it just looked a bit worrysome as to whether the bracket for the PCI card would have correct placement.

GTX 690 in this Case, so I think any other card will also fit ;)
