    Hey, recently I got myself an Elgato HD60 Pro. Without thinking (stupid me), I bought it and found out I have to put it in an I BELIEVE PCI-E 2 slot. But anyways, the slot is directly underneath the slot my GPU is placed. Now, my GPU is pretty big due to the fan meaning it blocks of the slot for my Elgato, meaning I can't plug both my Elgato and my GPU in at the same time.

    My GPU doesn't have USB (I've seen a few PCI risers online but they all need USB as far as I understand). Is there a way to - without getting a new motherboard etc - get them both in (I thought of some extension thing for my GPU so I can place my GPU somewhere without directly putting it in the slot)

    Sorry if this is messy written, hopefully it's understandable. I have no experience with hardware whatsoever.

    Hi Taiga, and welcome to TSG.

    It might help someone here to help you if you told us the brand and exact model numbers of the motherboard and all of the expansion cards that are currently added to it.

    Posting a clear photo of the motherboard inside of your computer's case may be of some help as well.
