    you can get them from maplins or pc world. Normal screws works so a local hardware shop will do.

    I bought a pack of assorted case screws, stand-offs and drive screws from a small local PC shop for £1.99 a while back.

    Thank you for your replies, the only reason I need them is because I installed a new graphics card but it didn't have any screws with it to the motherboard.

    Which would lead me to the opinion that this was deliberate:rolleyes:

    Fairly common mate. Did you not have to take a blanking plate out though? That may have had a screw depending on the case design.

    No, there wasn't a screw on the blanking plate (just a soldered plate), this is the first time I've upgraded a computer.

    the soldered ones just twist out, usually get the screws with the motherboard.
