hello, so i have got a problem. i have got a ZOTAC GeForce GTX 650ti. i cant insert it into the PCI-E slot because the metal part of the GPU cant fit into the expansion slot (it gets blocked by the metal part above and inbetween the 2 slots at the back of the gpu)
do i need to cut out the metal parts?
is there anything else i can do to make the gpu fit?

Please don't!

Might want to include the make and model of your motherboard as well as a video of how you're trying to insert the GPU into said PCIe slot. You can host your images/videos on Imgur and then parse the link here for us to see. If you're working with a build in a case, please include the make and model of the case as well. If the system is breadboarded, then leave the case's detail out.
