hi, my video card has a metal support plate attached to the back of it and the front of the computer. i am about to replace the video card which is longer than the old one. will i need to buy a new support plate? do i really need one?
I've ordered the GTX660 which is 269mm long! It will fit my case and I hope that I don't need a metal support plate (as shown in the photo above). If you guys think I do then please let me know. Thanks.
Job done! I installed the lengthy GTX660 today - it didn't have a support plate or any way of attaching one that I could see. It did wiggle a bit but it's in and working just fine / so avoiding earth quakes all should be well.
