Hello everyone

I'm not very knowledgeable about PC 's in general and when I opened up my PC because it was getting really dusty, I used a feather duster on the fans but I believe I snagged the GPU by accident. I started up my computer and so far everything works fine, but I'm not sure what came off and how it'll affect my computer's health in the future. I included a picture and I believe I snagged one of those tiny pins.

Thanks in advance!

If everything works fine then you've nothing to worry about as any damage to the GPU would have beeen immediately obvious when you booted up your PC.

However, using a feather duster to shift the dust is not recommended owing to the risk of electro-static discharge.

You should in future use an air-duster which doesn't involve touching components and does a much better job of shifting thick dust.
