I liked the full metal plate design on the GTX 295, I thought that was pretty good, they should do more like that when they do long heavy cards to combat the bend, that way the weight is mostly on the back bracket and not the PCI-E slot.

is it just me or is the pcb bent slightly due to the weight of the cooler ? , no support for such an expensive card is rather poor tbh . would it not put stress on the pci-e slot ?
you you have another reason to put vga support bar :toast:
