Default video card support

so i bought a new asus video card Newegg.com - ASUS ENGTX570 DCII/2DIS/1280MD5 GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card. and i installed it and it seems to me that its almost too heavy and is bending down. i figured itd be pretty easy to make a support. but id rather not if its not necessary. i would just think that its putting way too much pressure on the motherboard. its kind of hard to tell in the picture that its sagging but it definitely is

The card certainly shouldnt be too heavy it should be fine.

Did you build the PC yourself? Have you checked you have all of the correct motherboard risers underneath the motherboard?

Also once the card is in, the supports to the case on the back panel should actually pull it forwards and upwards a little bit.
