I recently bought the EVGA GeForce 1050 Ti Gaming, and noticed that the only way that it will fit in my computer is if the side that the monitor is supposed to connect is facing inside the computer. I am stumped. Is there any other way I can put it in? Or will I just have to snake the wires into my PC, and if so, is that okay?

 

 

Graphics card. Notice how the little notch on the part you plug in is next to the HDMI plugs.

Computer slots. The only way to plug in the graphics card is away from the opening on the case. (Sorry for bad quality, eh.)

The card has a PCIe connector. Your computer shows a legacy PCI slot. The card will not fit that slot.

But The slot under the smaller slot is a bigger one. That is a PCIe, correct?

The small slot is PCIeX1. Your larger slot is PCI.

  • PCI Express ×16
  • PCI Express ×1
  • PCI Express ×16
  • Legacy PCI (32-bit, 5 V)

OK I just realized that I am a complete and total idiot. I COMPLETELY neglected to look at the slot that my CURRENT FRIKEN CARD IS IN! That is my PCIe slot. I am SO sorry for wasting your time! XD
