    The pictures do indicate it will work. The picture of the motherboard suggests it may be the MicroATX form and there sometimes are issues with having room in the case to fit some of the upper-scale/more-powerful cards.

    The motherboard:

    Asus

    It's a micro ATX board, and a small one at that.*From its manual, I see no reason why*even a long graphics card wouldn't fit. The fork-like thing at the back of the PCI-E X16 slot is a lock that keeps the card in place if it is fully inserted into the slot.

    What's your power supply? The card:

    SAPPHIRE Technology

    recommends a 750W PSU or more. It*consumes less than 300W max. (It needs one 8 pin PCI-E auxiliary power connector, plus one 6 pin.) There are adapters that can feed a PCI-E connector from multiple Molex*plugs (the sort*that was once commonly used for hard drives), but I can't recommend their use.

    What is your PSU? There should be a tag on one face of the supply that gives its power ratings, plus an exact model number.

    There is a tongue on the end of the connector bus bar of the graphics card that you have to fit under the retaining bar of the blue socket on the motherboard. It takes a bit of juggling to angle it in before you can push the connection all the way down.

    That's a generic power supply. You'll need to buy a good power supply for that graphics card.

    Blurry, but I make out that it's an LC-8600BTX. Nominal 600W. (Two +12V outputs, each rated at 25A. Could be worse.)

    As far as I can find online, it only has a single 6 pin PCI-E power connector. You need an additional 8 pin one. (A 6+2 pin can be used as either a*6 pin or an 8 pin.) I get the impression that it's a generic PSU, probably not of*high quality.

    A quick check at*Newegg finds:

    EVGA 100-N1-0750-L1 750W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply - Newegg.com

    It's a 750W PSU from eVGA. $60US + $7 S&H. That's a pretty good price for a PSU with its specs, from a reputable maker. It's not much larger than the "TrendSonic" one, so I hope that it'd fit your case.

    It's a double slot width Card. It looks like it might foul the blue heat sink and possibly the capacitors at the side and behind the slot. Also maybe the RAM module retaining clips the other side.

    Unlikely.

    I think that the heat sink and caps are no taller than the capacitors alongside the slot. If it interfered with the RAM locking clips, a single slot card (of the same length) would as well. The first PCI-E X1 slot will be blocked, but that's common.

    Some of the later P8H61-M LE variants would have interferences with a couple of the SATA ports, but not this one.

    I doubt that I'd ever try to stick a 300W graphics card into a micro ATX board, but I'd guess this one will fit. Perhaps the OP can verify, although it sounds like he/she/it has already had trouble seating the card.
