So as I was constructing my first build, I ran into the problem of my CPU not having integrated graphics. Naturally, I rushed to a computer store that had the GT 620 for a fairly decent price, otherwise I would have ordered online.
When I opened it, this is how it looked:
This confused me because even on the box, the GPU is advertised
as having the back panel already connected. No biggie though.
I installed the GPU and ran a POST, everything seemed to be fine, so I began mount all my parts into the case. This is where I ran into a problem.
As my confusion and concern earlier had indicated, the GPU does need a panel that grounds the DVI, HDMI, and VGA ports together. problem is, nothing came in the case. No extra panel. just a driver installation CD.
My question is, am I able to install this GPU into the case still?
Am I able to go an buy a separate panel somewhere instead
of having to exchange it?
Basically, what are my options?
Also, here are some extra photos of where the GPU will go,
where on the case it's supposed to fit, etc:
Mobo PCIe 2.0 slot where GPU will go (bottom slot):
Back panel where GPU should fit:
Back of case where GPU should fit:
Thank you all for your time and help!
