Try this bracket instead, I have one ready and waiting if I can ever get my hands on a 3090

Do you have 3 combs for that ATX cable? cuz you could slide them down. Realistically you don't need them in the back. Also I have that same GPU... what the heck case do you have that actually makes it look small? You should grab a gpu bracket (I have this one, it's cheap and does the job well but the paint is cheap and will absolutely scratch off the first time you screw it on)
You can definitely pull those cables on the left side back through. Looks like front panels? USB 3.0 is always a tough one to manage since it's so firm. You can fold up the CPU cooler cable above the cooler I think but I'm not sure. The PCIE cables are satisfying to look at IMO. Same thing with the EPS cables as the ATX cables, move the combs closer together if you can.
Unless you are wicked OCD then this is a great job done. I hope my criticism was received as helpful and nontoxic.

That's obviously not an Optiplex. I take it the desktop just got you hooked and you built this? Nothing wrong with it, the title just led me to believe you had upgraded the Dell.
Here: GPU Support Bracket, beats a medicine bottle.

This is the one i used https://www.amazon.com/CloverTale-Aerospace-Upgraded-Version-Black/dp/B077LGLN4G
Word of warning. Its super cheap. I dont know how well this particular model will hold up overtime. I mostly got it to add another splash of red

I got a pretty solid one for a 1080 ti I used to have off amazon I believe or maybe Etsy it was $17 and was aluminum and anodized black with a small 3D printed riser to lift the card. It was super sleek, actually I found it typing this lol here’s a link. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077LGLN4G/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_M6psEb9HVBXA0

Is that a v6.0 Ncase? If so they come with a GPU bracket to prevent this. If an older version you could always use an anti sag bracket like this.

Yes. Get a bracket. Here's a link to one.

Okay. I only ask because the MSI 2070 comes with a bar. People often use wooden or plastic blocks/toys/figures that are just tall enough to give a little support. Or you can get a support bar like this.

I just amazon searched “GPU support bracket” and it was the first one to pop up. I’m not OP but I think this is the same one!

There are plenty of brackets and holders you can install. Here is one that is pretty minimal and well designed:
1 points • DeskParser
oh, well yes there are, but they mostly amount to some version of a rock under the edge.
Key exception I'm aware of being the L shapped brace that goes along your other PCI slots and has a horizontal cantileavered support which looked pretty slick
1 points • Schneijg
Yes. The 5700xt version. It works well! You need to tinker with the spacers to make sure you get it level, but otherwise, no issues.
If you are looking for support, I'd recommend.

I use these on my 1080 tis. Been 0 sag since I bought them.

I went with this one. Seems pretty solid, should do fine.

here’s one for $12 with prime, your gpu is about 12 inches i think and this is 11 so it might be a little short but you can always return it if it doesn’t work out

GPU Sag Recommendations
I recently put together my PC and noticed that my GPU has a slight sag. I have a Gigabyte 2070 Super Windforce OC 3X (a 2.5 width slot) paired with a Asus B550F motherboard. I would like something minimalistic/discrete. Was thinking something like this but wanted to get others opinions and solutions: https://www.amazon.com/CloverTale-Aerospace-Upgraded-Version-Black/dp/B077LGLN4G
Thanks ahead for the help! Love this community :)

It won't hurt anything. But I still don't like it. I have exact card. I bought this bracket thing that helped quite a bit and looks good too. Works good enough

You should buy a GPU support bracket to save your pcie slot. I bought this yesterday and it has great reviews. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077LGLN4G/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_i_Vv61EbM4DCJHR

Not sure if a link will work here, but this is the one I use.
I like it cause there’s no branding and it’s difficult to see. I don’t even notice it in my case.

Some can get expensive, however, if I may make a suggestion here

The support brackets can be rather low-profile and function by going over the screws in the side of the case that already support the GPU, just adding extra leverage and support for the GPU: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B077LGLN4G
If you have space for the GPU, you should have space for that.
Yeah, my brother's computer is a rather ratchety operation. It gets the job done, but it doesn't look pretty.

Cable management is fine, looks better than mine. That area on the backside of the board is there specifically for ugly cable routing.
> Also, is there anything I should be doing for the GPU sag?
You can leave it if you want, most of the stress is being put on where it screws into the case, not much is being put on the port or the card. There are creative ways to do it, and you can get brackets designed specifically for it, but I always recommend a method proposed by JayzTwoCents on how to fix it without any of those obvious supports.

I used this one, you can get cheaper ones, but I didn't want any logos.

I have the R2 as well, with 2 Evga 1080ti's ftw3 in it. As far as those supporting brackets, I took mine out and bought GPU supporting brackets off of Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B077LGLN4G/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1I don't think the 3090 will be a problem, but it depends on what processor you have, since after looking into mine, which is the I7-5960 @4ghz it seems that it will be ok with maybe a small amount of bottleneck in some games in 4K.

I got this one. Let me see if I can take a pic. I honestly never share pics on reddit, so I don't even know how, but the ones on amazon are pretty spot on. No branding, no RGB, it just does its job without looking dumb.

If you never move your computer, it's probably OK. But... I wouldn't be happy leaving it like that. I'd get one of these https://www.amazon.com/CloverTale-Aerospace-Upgraded-Version-Black/dp/B077LGLN4G/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=gpu+support+bracket&qid=1585841318&sr=8-1

I'll admit I haven't used any gpu supports personally, as I decided to build my rig in the cooler master elite 130, which stands the card up sideways. I'm sure if you search the subreddit you can find some.
That said a lot of them seem to use this style of support:
Then theres a few other styles: https://www.amazon.com/upHere-Graphics-Anodized-Aerospace-Aluminum/dp/B079HSVSLR
Personally I like the style if just turning the card sideways like the last one, but I know in some cases you need those extra slots and it can negatively impact thermals. Remember, this is pretty much just an aesthetic choice, so it's really not a huge deal if you end up not wanting to deal with it.

remove the wooden beam, unplug the gpu.
Check the GPU connectors and the PCIe slot for breaks, cracks, or anything else obvious.
Reseat the unit and plug the cables back in, make sure you are using a separate power cable for each 8-pin connector.
If you need a new brace, get something like this instead:

I got this bracket, didn't want one of the ones that stand vertically on the bottom of the case inside. I ended up flipping the bracket upside down though (excuse the dust, didn't realize it was that bad until I took a pic with flash haha)
The reasoning behind the power cables is to provide a more stable power supply. IIRC each PCIE cable is rated around 150w and I've seen my card peak at 195w under load, so it's necessary to power the card via 2 separate cables.
