Place new thermal grease on the graphics card. Use only enough to cover the graphics processor die.

Hold the new card at a 30-degree angle and slide it into the empty slot. This card is keyed so it can only be inserted in one direction. If the card does not fit, make sure that the notch in the card lines up with the tab in the card slot.
