I have recently purchased a Radeon HD 5770 (Direct from dell) and there's this huge metal bracket on the right hand side of the card. Here's a few pictures: http://en.community.dell.com/cfs-filesystemfile.ashx/__... http://i.imgur.com/5WjDB.jpg I have taken off the metal bracket and put the graphic card into a PC. It works perfectly fine. however, I am worried. Was the metal bracket made for heat dissipation, or is it something i can remove? Thank you for your time.
