Most PCI cards actually do require a lot more force than most people think I'd say. Don't be fooled, those things are actually build quite durable and a bit of pressure should not damage it. When your PCI card is inserted properly, you should here a very loud snapping noise, that's how you know if it's in or not.

sometimes I have found that the little tab on the card does not go into the slot on the bottom of the case, I have had to bend it out a bit with pliers so when it is installed it will go into this slot. And then you can screw it into place. Kinda hard to explain but look at your case where the pci slots are and you will see a slot on each pci. Hope this
