I was trying to get it into the pcie slot but it would not go into the slot because of the case. I took off a surrounding sheild (what ever their called where the ports go) after the initial 2 for it but it still wont fit in. There is about 1-2 mm short of space to fit in. After putting the card down and giving up I noticed one of the connectershad been chipped off at the top ( it had to be done while I was putting it in I assume).

So how bad did I mess this up? I am feelibg pretty bad :(

It was not chipped all the way but about 1/4 of it I think I see the gold on my mobo so should I get that off as well?

I did that once to a GPU and it still worked fine. About the only thing you can do is see if it works.

I cant get it in and I am honestly a bit too nervous to do it now. I know I will not be able to sleep at all with it on my mind

The best course of action is to just get the information you need, then get out while you're still alive. - destroy everything on GameFAQs

the gold pathing is still complete to the chip, you just nicked the end a bit. give it a try i bet it would still work.
