Hello. 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:

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.
