Red face funny things happen when you buy a cheap case

Funny thing, bought an atx case and an atx mobo whent to install the mobo in the case and the stand off pegs cause the mobo to lift to high up all the ports in the back do not match up and i not about to force anything in. so uh if any one has any solutions besides buying another case please respond. Ha thats what i get for buying a cheap case!

maybe get a new case haha

actually some motherboards come with the backports so you can unscrew the ones in case and make the ports match the motherboard i think anyways

My old case was so cheap that it was plastic and screws couldn't hold the case in!

My new computer is made by a big name brand with a crappy PSU, but at least it's a metal case!
