Warranty, ask your friend for the receipt. If a 'part' of your mobo is broken, consider all of it broken.

First, your motherboard uses DDR2 RAM.

Second, the main value of the DIMM retaining clips is to make sure the RAM is fully seated in the socket. If the only problem is that broken memory clip, you should still be able to use that socket. Have you tried? Just make sure that the memory module is fully seated.
