Hard lesson learnt indeed! I did a lot of homework but it didnot workout as i thought it would. I knew the DX won't be a perfect fit on my motherboard but still i went ahead and bought it because a fellow owner of DX had the same motherboard + DX and said he used it (with the bend) without issues. I mentioned board size because ATX is bigger and has more space for slots so i'll always buy ATX next time to make sure i don't run into trivial problems like these (running out of slots!). Anyways i am not sure if the problem is because of the bend. I think it can only be checked if i use it on a diff PC.. what say?
