IDK man, looks pretty much like the normal bendage I see on all long heavy cards with large heatsinks and cooling after they've been hanging in a system for a while. Especially if it was installed for while previously without a support bracket. Long heavy cards tend to warp the PCB after a while when the weight on the end of the card extends very far beyond the PCI slot and that one does.

Might be worth looking into a longer support bracket, but honestly, it looks to me like the warpage has already happened and there is probably more bad than good to be gained by forcing it back straight again. A longer card support bracket might correct it over time or keep it from getting worse though.

Almost looks to me like that bracket wasn't even meant for that specific card. One of these that is card specific might be better.
