What Tai is trying to say is whether the amount of slots the new graphics card takes which is 2 will fit in his case and the answer would be yes. There shouldn't be any performance decrease as without the necessary power connector, the system will usually not start up but your best bet is to just order the adapter unless you are certain Gigabyte includes the adapter.
Hey, ok thanks for all your help, I think I will order the parts today and tomorrow and ask the store whether or not the adapter comes with card, if not ill order it separately.
Also, just to make sure, this is the back of my pc,
So I got what you mean, it takes two slots and there's a space in the card to allow that, I didn't realize that before.
But anyway I opened my slot thingy to see if I can take off the one above it to allow it to fit but it seems I can't, I can easily remove the one above that one (2nd from top) but not the one above my current card. so it seems I can't open the one above the card to allow the card to fit in, I can't open the ones with the 2 lines on them, am I missing something or is my computer built in a stupid way?
EDIT: So I just read that some cases are built in a way that you have to break the metal piece off, well I did just that and now I have that slot open. so NVM that whole deal. Next i'll ask the store if the card comes with the that connector. Thanks for the help.
