No problem for me but I have a different motherboard. Sounds like you got it in though so no worries.

I had to push an 8800GT towards the case slot in the 900 however the PCI NIC card was fine.

Had same problem here, I think it might be the board. I have the 680I P5N32 - E SLI, same board as your striker just a few less features.
