Do you think I Damaged My PCI-Slot?

Hello. So the other day I was doing a few things like installing new fans in my Dtop and thought it would make it easier if I took out the GPU while I worked inside the case. Stupidly, I was kind of aggressive when I took the Videocard out. I put the card back in and it works fine and there hasn't been a decrease in performance from what I've seen. Im a paranoid person and just wanted your guys's opinions. Do you think I may have damaged something?

  1. Nah you usually have to be firm with computer hardware to install/uninstall.

    As long as it keeps working, you're fine,

    You're all fine. Don't worry. As long as it's working properly, and you're not having any sort of issues you're all set. Just remember there's a little tab that you press to allow the graphics card to release without quite so much force generally. Also, always remember to pull it straight out and not at a weird angle or anything like that.
