Hey guys, I have a problem. I was looking for a new gpu for my PC and I wasn't really sure about how one would fit for this one particular reason. The problem is i have a 760GM-P34(FX) mobo, and I currently have a zotac 1050ti mini which is about 5.7" long. I wanted to get something that's maybe around 9.5" to 11" long but there's these pesky cables stopping me from doing this (see pictures). I have about 16" of space in the case so the total space is not the problem. I was wondering, since i really want to upgrade to one of the 1060's or RX 580's, how would i do so with these wires in my way? Thanks please reply asap, and i will try to answer as fast to the best of my abilities :)

Those cables can be bent down to keep them out of the way OR you can get right angle SATA cables. You will have to look around to find some that are oriented the correct way as most of them are 90 degree in the wrong direction.

These should actually work for the direction of your SATA headers, and should eliminate the height of the SATA as a problem with interference with any graphics card.

Alright, I may just bend the cable down then, also, do you think that i would have a problem with fitting a 9.5"-11" gpu in my pc?
