Update: So i tested the pc out without a gpu in it; went straight to desktop no problem. (Well. it black screened a bit after login but thats been an issue for awhile.) there was nothing wrong as far as i could see except high cpu usage; which i assumed was cause of using intergrated graphics. I bought a 1050 off PCcase and hopefully it'll be here soon; i'll ask the techs to test the PSU as i only want the pc to last a few more months; no sense buying everything brand new if its just gonna get shelved 3 months later.
i have a broken GPU and i had the old gpu plugged in to just check if it can work on integrated graphics online.
there's a lil bit of orange as the gpu catches fire for a bit and i immediately turn it off.
I am now afraid to turn it on but would this have damaged the motherboard? it wasn't a huge fire just like a small spark of one. and i have taken the gpu out to not tempt me again!
