Does PCIe x16-cards fit in BTX-chassis as well?

  1. Simple question really;

    I'm about to purchase a BTX-chassi and a BTX-motherboard. The motherboard has a regular PCIe x16-slot.

    I do also have a graphics card with the PCIe x16 interface, from my old ATX-chassi.

    Can I simply pop the card in the PCIe-slot, or does the BTX-structure require something else like an inverted card specifically made for the BTX?

    i'm pretty sure it works all the same, with the slot being the same distance from the chassis itself as with an ATX.

    You should link the board you're talking about, it would be a big help.

    That being said, the plug and play spec for any device, includes both electronic and physical characteristics.

    Although, I have seen literature about HTPC cases, that because of size, required low profile video cards.
