Exclamation AGP Card not Compatible w/ Case?

Alright here is my systems specs

2x 17" Monitors (CRT = Main / Flat Panel = Extended Desktop)
AMD Athlon 64 3200+
MSI K8N Neo Platium
7.1 Channel On-Board Surround Sound
Corsair 2x 512MB DDR400 (1024MB Total)
80GB Western Digital SATA
Lite-On 16x Dual Layer DVD-RW+R9
Samsung 16x DVD/CD Player
Windows XP Pro

Nvidia GeForce6600 (AGP)
DynaPower ATX Mid Tower Case 430W

(Gasps for air...)

Obviously, the bottom list contains the hardware thats not fitting together correctly... When I plug the Vid Card in the AGP Slot on my motherboard, it matches up fine in the back its just that the screw wholes don't match up... This is a problem cause my comp has crashed over 4 times now (built this 1 month ago) because the card has come loose... Did I get a crappy case or have I finally become computer illiterate (Shivers at the thought)

Help? Suggestions? Buy a new case? X_X
Thx in Advance!

Yeah it's because it's a crappy case, the wholes are the same no matter what.

It would be best for you to take a picture, it seems like drilling a new whole would be a good option

Also, if its no trouble could someone tell me good cases for the cool glowy lights one too?

Thx in Advance!

Here's a few off of NewEgg:

Note: This is not an endorsement. Most cases come with dodgy PSUs. Keep that in mind when you are pricing them. Plus, the better cases are a tad expensive.

Antec 300 Illusion / Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W / EVGA GTX 760 2GB
AMD FX 8320 x8 Black Edition / Gelid Tranquillo / MSI 970A-G43
Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB / Samsung 840 120GB / WD Black 750GB / WD Green 1TB / WD Red 3TB
G.SKILL Ripjaws 2x2GB DDR3 1600 - Crucial Ballistix Tracer 2x2GB DDR3 1600
Win7 Ult 64-bit - Func MS3 Mouse - CM Storm QuickFire Rapid Mech Keyboard
