Use a wider screw.

Intel Core i9 9900K HT 5GHz
GIGABYTE Z390 Ultra
AMD ASUS STRIX OC VEGA 64
G-Skill Trident 2x8GB DDR4 4000MHz
Samsung EVO NVM.e 250GB
SeaSonic 1250W Gold
Corsair 900D + Custom Loop.

I would grab a generic anti sag kit, it looks like you can mount it on the right side of the card to make it less visible.
Even without using the anti sag kit and if a case screw holding the gpu comes lose, it shouldn't damage the PCI-E slot or the GPU - the card will probably hang on the HDMI/DP plug of the monitor cable against the case.

Core i9 9900K @ 5.2 || EVGA Z390 DARK || 2x8GB G.Skill TridentZ RGB 4600 C18 @ 4266 C17 || GPU: EVGA Kingpin RTX2080Ti @ 2130MHz || Samsung 970PRO 1TB + 860EVO 2TB || Lian Li O11 Dynamic White || Corsair AX1600i || Screen: LG B8 OLED 55 and LG 34GK950F

You stripped one screw or hole. try a different wider screw or a screw that goes through the hole and put a nut on it.

How the **** didn't I think of that XDD Man, I built audio equipment with heavy transformers and I couldn't think of that, thank you so much.

However, another issue was the sag, I mean, I've had a 1080 Ti before from MSI, Gaming X but this takes the cake. The provided holding arm does NOTHING.

I can tell you it does work but has a catch - place the PC horizontaly, then make sure the bracket firmly touches the card and fasten the bracket.
You can also push the bracket against the card so it moves a bit upwards and then fasten the bracket and the card.
