    How to determine part compatibility


    I've read several reviews on Newegg and Amazon that warn about compatibility issues (ex: this card will block one of your ram slots). I'm concerned because I need to include a wifi adaptor in my build and don't want it to be blocked. Can you please help me determine how everything will fit? I'm currently looking at the pieces below. Please let me know if I need to give any more information.

    Its a tiny PCI-E 1x card. I can't see it interfering with anything.

    Usually the concern is for GPUs, which the higher end ones can be massive.
