screw in the blank bottom bracket first (screw #1)
make sure it's lined up parallel and perfect
screw in your gpu as normal but have the bracket rest against the bottom one (screw #2)
now you should have an empty screw hole between screw #1 and #2
screw in the third screw for added strudiness so the cards don't slip/droop
it should be nice and tight and parallel and no drooping whatsoever
that's what I did but I also have a hard 3-way sli bridge to help as well
if it's not working your doing something wrong or your not screwing them in tight enough or get better screws

i think he is talking about the other end of the card. think its the end you plug your power into, not the dvi's..

I have used fishing line to hold my card up without any problems. It probably isn't necessary, but I'm willing to take the extra 30 seconds during my install to avoid any potential mobo warping due to a heavy GPU.

Fishing line is good stuff. I have used it myself to hold up a modded socket 370 heatsink/fan on to my old 3DFX Voodoo 2 since the thermal tape on the original HS fell off.

Like has been said, make sure mounting screws are tight, motherboard mounting screws too.

Just google small pole tongue.gif

You can also use a pencil, chopstick, popsicle stick, balsa wood stick, etc, anything that will bridge the gap you need. Size it up, cut then paint it, done.
