Default graphics card damage?

hello, Iv recently just bought a new case (thermaltake Kandalf). I removed my graphics card which was jammed in due to a bad screw and 2 little things broke off the PCB circuit there about 2mm and brown with silver at each end. Does anyone no if it will do much damage? My pc seems to run ok for now.

If it works it's fine.

Usually components breaking off PCBs isn't a good thing though...

Yeah, My suggestions are:

1. Call or E-mail the manufacturer and find out if it IS important

2. If its important, check to see if the warrenty is still good
Sig privileges back.

I love you sig santa :D
