Hello, both my PCI-e tabs have broken, an while my physx card easily ame out my 680 is having a hard time. The part that goes in the long strip neart hte tab appears to be coming out but the small slit seems tightly grips on my gpu. I cannot remove the mobo since my gpu covers 2 of the screws. any tips?

If damage caused by misusing product (damage hardware by user) no warenty. so if gpu works fine use that mobo or change that slots (u need to spend money) contact mobo customer care or local service engineer.
Or buy new mobo.

Those tabs are actually meant to hold the GPU in, it shouldn't be a problem. I broke the tab on one of my PCIe slots, and its no issue since I never move the computer around, and if I do I take the GPU out ALWAYS.
