I hacked it off!

I couldn't find a replacement GTX 1060 or 1070 card on eBay that met my criteria for price, seller reputation, and visible location of the power connector. So my decision went back to sawing off the handle.

It turns out the problem was with my crappy technique. I watched some Youtube videos to get a better understanding of how it's done and what NOT to do, and picked up the cover to try it again. 10 minutes and some sweat later, the obstructive piece of the handle was off. I'll cover up the jagged edges with duct tape.

Who woulda thunk hacksawing would be a required skill for installing a video card.
