Hello Everyone
I bought a new graphics card a Geforce GTX 550 Ti. But I am unable to install it due to a cable that is right next to the PCI-e 2.0 slot.
so I was wondering is it possible to remove this cable or not? I took some pictures so you can see what I am talking about.

This picture is of my graphics card: http://i707.photobucket.com/albums/ww79/rookie2185/NvidiaGraphicsCard550GTXTI.jpg

This is the cable that is in the way: http://i707.photobucket.com/albums/ww79/rookie2185/2012-09-12075852.jpg

by the way this is the specs for my pc:
Acer AM3470G-UW10P Desktop PC with AMD Quad-Core A6-3620 Accelerated Processor,
4GB Memory, 500GB Hard Drive and Windows 7 Home Premium

And it has a built in graphics card an AMD Vision. That is why I want to upgrade my graphics card. I already bought the graphics card just cant install it cause of the cable.
I like to play high graphical games like Skyrim, World of Warcraft, Fallout 3, Deus Ex: Human Revolution these are just a few games that I play, thats why I need to install that graphics card.

That cable is either your front panel audio or front panel USB. You can unplug it assuming you don't mind losing one of those front panel connectors.
