I Hate Computers

Haven't been playing much SC as of late. My power supply decided it was a good time to die out. So I had to wait to replace it, get it replaced now my graphics card refuses to work. I'm not sure if my bad PSU fried it somehow in the process or not. Unfortunately it didn't fit properly in my case so I had to Jerry-rig it in there. I think that's what the actual problem is and just putting in the new pins just jarred it loose, and I can't get it back in properly again.

I was using this...

Now I've had to downgrade to this.

It's still a decent card but not as good as my previous. Oh well I'm glad I kept my old card handy just in case something like this happened.

I'm not too sure how to test if the card if it's done, without having another mobo/Whole PC set up. So I'll have to just keep it in storage until now. Oh well what can you do?
