Re: Confused about GPUs and how they screw in
put the card in the slot.
line up 2 holes on the bracket and 2 holes in the case where there are slots that the connectors go through.
screw into whatever is there. it should look like the second one when all is said and done. there's no need for a zip tie.
the middle hole is if your case is 'tool-less' meaning there are plastic brackets than come down and sandwich the card in. Since your case isn't then you have to use screws.
