    • Power off the PC, and disconnect the power cable from the tower.

    • Open the side panel on the PC.

    • Some panels have clips that are easy to unlatch, and others have screws that need loosening. Only the panel that gives access to the components needs removing.

    • Remove the screw(s) holding the graphics card into the slot.

    • Unclip and remove any power cables connected to the GPU.

    • Release the PCI-e slot tabs that hold the GPU in place.

    • You may have to unlock it to release the card.

    • Place the card in the slot, and press down gently until it locks into place.

    • Ensure it’s fitted into the slot correctly and that both sides sit flush. When it’s locked in correctly, the tab on the slot should hold it in place.

    • Secure the new GPU to the slot with the screw(s) that was removed earlier.

    • Reconnect the power cables to the graphics card and power supply.

    • Startup the PC.

    • When the PC starts up for the first time after installing a new graphics card, it will search for the drivers.

    • It’s always worth using the latest drivers to ensure the best functionality and compatibility with the latest games.

    • Once the new GPU is working, it’s advisable to remove any redundant drivers and software used for the old graphics card.
