Press on the top back of the tab on the connector and pull. It will take SOME force to remove. Don't go hulk on it though. 

 

Fine you want the PSU tier list? Have the PSU tier list: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1116640-psu-tier-list-40-rev-103/

It looks like you have it in there backwards. The little locking mechanism should be facing towards us.

NO. The knob is clearly on the other side on this card and you post one that is very different to his.

EVGA flips the connector direction. Some brands have the clip facing up.

I used that image because I haven't seen a card with the locking mechanism on that side... like ever.

Here is a reference style 960

Specifically the locking tab, if you can lift that over the hook, it should come out

Asus and MSI  have it facing up though. And well that are 2 noticeable players in the GPU market.

Again, you posted an EVGA card. OTHER brands have the clip facing DIFFERENT directions.

Probably because I like never use or recommend their products over EVGA :-D. I do have an old MSI card, but they are not turned that way either.

I have a pair of 480's like this one.
