So I'm setting up a video card up for my friend he has a "nVidia GeForce 9800GT", before I go any further I want to give you guys pictures of the motherboard and the SATA cable that is giving me issues. Here is the link to the motherboard: http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/MSI/4006273R/4006273R_NV.jpg. Here is the link to the SATA cables that is giving me problems, remember I will explain: http://c1.neweggimages.com/NeweggImage/productimage/12-104-557-02.jpg.

OK now that we got that taken care of, if you look on the picture of the motherboard there are 4 orange SATA ports. OK now that shouldn't be an issue but it is and I'll explain why. When I plug in the video card in the PCI slot, it is blocking the SATA port, so I can't connect power to the HDD obviously. The top of the card is right over the orange SATA ports, so my question is, is there a 90 degree SATA plug I can get that will work in the same way, if you see what I'm saying, or do you guys have any other solutions?
