TC-705-EB53 video card installation

tkavantkavan Member Posts: 40 Troubleshooter

I've successfully installed an eVGA GeForce GT 730 2GB GDDR5 64bit card with no problems... except that I first punched out the wrong hole in the back of the case :-(.  I guess I can regard it as extra ventilation?

 

I have two questions:

 

- The specs say the PCI exansion slot is x16, but Speccy shows it as x8.  Have I done something wrong?

 

- In the pic below what is the square thing above the expansion slot, and what are the the black and white wires coming from it?  And what is the thicker black wire at the bottom?

 

Thanks for any answers,

Tom

    EVGA isn't very clear if it's x8 or x16, because saying PCI-E 2.0 means nothing or at least capable to x16.

     

    it's better if you send an email to EVGA and ask that information.

    I'm not an Acer employee.
