This is a pic of the graphics card in my new rig and it seems to be bending, should I be worried? I know my cable management is bad atm but i plan to fix it once i know thst my graphics card is safe in that condition. It is a radeon hd 7950 thanks for any help! http://i49.tinypic.com/16730v8.jpg
they actually do make a prop ( support ) for that such thing. I have a couple of plastic wire ties wrapped around one of the power plugs and loop them through a hole in the hard drive bay somewhere above the card. does an adequate job an gives a sense of "relief" if you know what I mean. I don't like watching my cards bend and put pressure on the slot neither.
Look up your case type, and look for a VGA bracket. Should hold your GPU. My HAF X came with one, but I don't use it. I really don't think a 7950 could be enough to put pressure on the slot, have you made sure wires are not pulling it down?
I had a 690 in my system once, with the same board as yours (I had it in my system for a couple of minutes to check if it works with my friends computer, didn't work in his system), and it didn't bend at all. Very Strange.
