So I just built a new system and my stupid pcie 16x slot bracket popped off the pins and they bent. I don't know how to put it back on or if it is possible. So I slapped my 670 ftw into the 8x slot to try out the comp anyhow.
My question is how much performance loss should I expect not using the 16x slot with this card. I have no plans of getting a second card so that parts not an issue.
Thanks that is not as bad as I thought. The warranty should cover it I assume I just got it today from newegg. Was lame I went to pull the Video card out so I could move some cables and I barely pulled on it even after I pushed the clamp down and the bracket just popped out.
