What I did with my 2 cards is the following...

I used the PCI-E power cables to "retain" the cards.

so I ties the cable in a way that they hold the cards at a certain height...
It's not the best thing, but it works...

also, MSI now adds a "retaining" bracket that goes on the edge of the cards...
The HAWK and the new GTX560 (non-ti) TFII has it...

I asked MSI ALEX for the chance to get some and he crapped on me...He said it wasn't needed LOL...I replied, why then the new GTX560 comes with it...I guess they don't want to be involved with it...

But MSI definitely ships new cards with a edge bracket to straighten out the cards....so THEY KNOW.......

That's what I am doing now! It helps a little.

EVGA does sell a backplate for GTX560Ti (see pic 1) but it is designed for reference PCB. This backplate can still be mounted onto your non reference PCB MSI GTX560Ti TFII (see pic 2) but the backplate will not be completely mounted as the four outer screw holes are missing. So, the plate will have to hold onto the PCB with the four inner screws. IMHO, this does not help much as far as sagging is concerned.

Pic 3 shows the chopstick approach.

A more elegant and expensive (US$18) alternative is to use Powercolor's Power Jack.
Pic 4 shows the 2 possible positions to install the support from underneath the card.
