While I was installing my new graphics card on my mobo, I chipped two delicate pins of this ITE chipset thingy. As you can see, I should you where I chipped it and where the chipset is. The pins are kind of pushing a little foward, I mean it doesn't look that serious. What do you guys think?

If they are no longer making contact, or are now contacting anything else, or the solder joint is broken(which is what it sounds like) you're going to have problems. You could get lucky and they be data pins for something you're not using, and its probably fixable by the right person with a proper soldering station if the pins aren't snapped.

I wouldn't bet on an RMA working as its probably fairly obvious you damaged it.
