Hey guys! I've built my own rig & been running it for a couple of years & its been great. But i'm just wondering When I take out & put in my graphics card at first the light shined white when I reboot but I notice once it gets going it just flashes red all the time. Just wondering if this is normal or if it's a problem. I have a "Geforce GTX 1050 Ti". My computer can detect it just fine.

Why are you removing the card at all if the system is running normally? And if it's running normally, why would you think there was a problem? A great way to break something is trying to fix an issue that is not there. Did you check the video card manual or online support to see what the lights on it mean if it's not just the RGB lights on the card?

Well I didn't know if the red light means it not operating at full capacity. Its a pretty good card and I notice with some games it won't even run on high

That is an RGB card, it has lights on it, those are those lights. So now you are actually asking the right question, you have something with the games not running on High.

Now that we got the right question, what games are you talking about and at what resolution? When you say they don't run on high settings, what FPS are you getting? A 1050Ti is not a bad card but not really a good one, it is on the lower tier of gaming cards for newer games.

It's mostly with survival games like ark & conan I have to run on medium. Surprisingly some triple A games I can run close to max but only some of them.
