I'm not at all expert when it comes to modern GPU's, and I'm just about to fit a brand new Sapphire HD 6770 into my new build.
However, I opened up the box and was just lining it up with the PCIe slot when I realised that the back metal plate part is not at 90 degrees to the PCB section of the card as I had expected.
It seems more like say 75 degrees - so if I put the card in the mb there will be a gap at the back where the GPU plate doesn't line up properly with the rest of the case.
Is this normal or have I been sent a reject that got through quality control or that the courier dropped down a flight of stairs?
(I also don't want to bust my mb by trying to fasten the GPU plate into my case if it is bollocksed!)
Any help much appreciated.
(Oh, and I checked online first, and although I couldn't find anything conclusive the pictures on the Sapphire site seem to suggest that this one is bust - although it is hard to tell from the angle that their pictures were taken at.)

It is not normal, if it is just the plate you can bend it back.
