It doesn't align right. I'm not sure why. It just doesn't fit on that side correctly. It fits in the slot correctly, and it is working fine, but I don't like how it isn't secure. The clips don't grip it correctly, and I don't know if the holes for screws would line up.

But I need screws for this giant thing. Any advice on what's going on?

well i dont know about you, but my case came with things blocking the PCI ports that had screws, and you had to remove them to install PCI cards. So you should have screws from your case lying around somewhere.

Make sure your card is seated fully, the security locks should snap in place for the pci-ex16 slot. Also, make sure the Dvi-ports are not obstructed by the case, I've had a few cards that have had this extra rubber at the base of the port that caused the metal slot portion of the case to bend; making the card not seat correctly.

Looks like your snaps don't fit behind the heatsink...
