The reason i got the AMD r5 230 veido card was becuase it only took 1 slow on my desktop i cant use a 2 slot card with this case. (prebuilt other then video card)

In reply to: Also

I asked for what video card you installed. If none, it's that AMD APU GPU.

The r5 230 isn't very good for gamers. OK at low settings but gamers tend to want what is on the list I pointed out.

Maybe you'll have to modify/change cases too.
