Moving Graphics card

At the moment, my graphics card is in the top pc-i slot and RIGHT above another pc-i slot, if i put a card in there, it will block the fans, so, am i able to move the graphics down a pc-i slot without any disturbances or re-installing any drivers? thanks.

Reddax, welcome to the Seven Forums.

If this is the board listed in your specs,

ASUSTeK Computer Inc. - Motherboards - ASUS M4A87TD/USB3

no you can't as there is no where to move it too. The video card requires a PCI-E x16 slot, and you motherboard only has one,

and you cannot put a PCI-E card in a PCI slot, which is what all the light blue slots are.
