I need one of the screws that holds the heatsink onto a reference Asus GTX480. I stopped in at a computer repair shop, and they said they don't have them. They come with a spring, but all I need is the screw. I live in the Silicon Valley, you would think someone around here would have them. Maybe it's just something any hardware store would have, or are they specialized?

If you just need the screw you can take out another one of them, go to Lowe's or Home Depot, check the threading and then buy one that matches it.

Id go to a smaller hardware store, as they often carry specialty sizes/items the big ones dont have, as they usually just carry the popular sizing
You can find it somewheres on the net as well, but youll spend a lil for just 1, but its important to first get the proper threading/size right, then go shopping
