How do I put the BFG GTS 250 into an x1 slot? I have the OC edition and it looks like this:


Also can I even run physx off an pcie x1 slot? I heard you can but I am not completely sure.

It looks like I need to take the metal part around the DVI ports off so I can turn it upside down to plug it into the pcie x1 slot

You have to cut it off? What?

I've seen some PCI-E x1 slots with the rear cut off, enabling them to be used for PCI-E x16 cards.

There's an example... But I really have seen some boards with this feature, I just forgot what I saw it on. XD
