    If you're talking about the little clip on the end of the PCIe socket that clicks into the notch on the GPU - don't worry.

    It's there so that vibration won't let the GPU unseat itself. If you transport the system - you might want to remove the card and reinsert it later.

    But nobody expects a pie to break your arm! (Kinda like the Ghostbusters' reaction to the giant Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, "I tried to think of the most harmless thing. Something I loved from my childhood. Something that could never, ever possibly destroy us. Mr. Stay Puft...")
