Hello, I recently bought a PC from a buddy, and when I got it, he neglected to tell me that he stripped out the case screw holes holding the GPU down. Right now I have a 5830 held in this G.Skill iBuyPower case with bread twist ties, and it scares the absolute piss out of me that I'm going to bump it or something and blow it up. Any suggestions on finding a more reliable way of securing this card?

Right off the top of my head you could drill out the screw hole and put a screw straight through with a nut on the other end to secure it. The screws should be a 6/32x.25" so you could use a 6/32x.5".
Another possibility would be to tap the treads to the next size up which would be a 8/32.
