    All you people that say this is a good idea should really know better - of course its a good idea to the average joe but most of us have a lotta household items that can prop a graphics card up with a few minor modifications - obviously the designs n such wont be as refined or look as good as this product - but anyone with a hint of commonsense & some tools can fabricate something that does the same job out of wood, card or possibly plastics (but you may need a mold of some sort for that depending how you go about it) it shouldnt even take 30mins to carve up a small block of wood and use some double sided tape to prop up the graphics card.

    Ok I'm surprised nobody has said this but what is wrong with just making your own!!! Use a bit of wood or something if you have no skill with tools lol

    For example, even my asus HD4850 is really bent on the other end. I can just imagine how other non reference models with heavy heatsinks will bend over time. Therefore this is quite nice idea, but I would apply some double sided tape or other stuff that will keep it at its place. And they should have a crossfire version that clips on the edge of pcb or something like that and is fully adjustable.
