Will my card be ok :(

Took my pc to a shop today to get rebuilt in a new case, on the way there the card must have shook out of the pcie slot some how and when the guy took out the screws for the card the card slid and fell out onto the psu

 

it looked fine and no exterior damage, but he couldn’t finish the rebuild because my 280 rad didn’t fit in the new case 

 

so now iv been worried all night that tomorow he will finish it and my gpu will be fucked :( 

 

rip 2080ti ftw3 ultra 

 

I’m so oranges out, pls tell me stories about dropping stuff and it still works !

It'll be fine, a drop of several inches won't kill a card, unless the system was powered on when ti happened, which is unlikely since they were transferring parts to a new case.

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

You can't exactly tell if a card is broken based on the drop.  A card can fall down the stair and survive and another can fall from 2ft and die instantly. You'll have to find out when you get there. Though I imagine it'll be unlikely it got damaged.

Linus dropped a lot of stuffs but LTT still works!

 

IMO, no need to sweat about it. GPU is a lot stronger than you think.
