4870 if I'm not mistaken,
I'd say make a bracket and keep that metal ruler away from your bloody graphics card! :p

Be nice, he did take the card out of his machine first.

Forgive me if I'm wrong, but there's one in the picture? What do you need one for?

@Paul, it doesn't matter,
he could easily knock a component or short something, residual current takes a while to dissipate :)

Yes it is a 4870 lol and btw the ruler has a cork back, I wouldn't just lay metal on metal. Why does it matter why I need a new one? I need a new one because I stripped 2 of the screw heads and I want to take a dremel to the heads to make a notch but it is level with the bracket. Anyone know of any places I can buy a new bracket?

Glad to hear about the cork backing :-) I'd google around to check the bracket size for the cards it does say it fits but I'm confident that that would suffice

I do not think a video card has enough residual current to do much.

I like the idea of those other brackets listed. My only worry would be that the AMD bracket has 4 rubber feet that touch in a certain spot on the board.

the H80 one. It is actually to go on the TOP of the card and hold a water cooler. I am gonna try to dig and see if my old X1900 bracket is still kicking around and what size it is.

It does not seem like I am able to find it. It was years back when I swapped the heatsink from that card, I did remember it just sitting around for a while. If I catch site of it, it's all yours(assuming it can just be mailed out. Please do not post an address in here, If I find it. we will use PM's for that). I will have another look for it today and see if anything turns up.

Was just about to give up on it.

Close, a bit thinner and not as wide. not 100% sure the screws will fit right. It also has the rubber pads missing. you would have to try to stick the old ones on(2 way tape). This is it on a 4870
