What idiot decided video cards need a latch?

By CharlieSpencer ·
We got along fine for over a decade with cards just plugging in. No stupid latches were needed. Then someone apparently decided video cards might just jump out on their own. He or she decided a @#$!@$ latch was needed on the mobo to prevent the potential breakouts, and positioned this knuckle-buster so as to practically require removing the case to get to the sumbich. Drat him or her to heck for the perceived duration of a 'Dukes of Hazzard' marathon.
