Default Having trouble installing new AGP card (x800GT).

I am removing my old GeForce 4 MX 440 64 MB and putting in an x800gt.


Now I took out the MX and I tried to put in the x800gt in the AGP slot, but it wouldn't budge on the metal side.

IT WON'T BUDGE! The stupid thing I circled will NOT go into the bottom of the case. I tried so hard to push it in but it won't go in. Is there anything you know that might do something? I put in the old card back in three times so I know it's not the slot or anything.
