Most newer motherboards have reinforced PCIe slots.
My last 2 have...but there's still a limit to how much weight can be supported by the slots.
Good thing a lot of the weight is supported by the I/O bracket too. I would not worry too much. My 670’s with water blocks on them were heavier than any GPU I’ve used since and my P8-Z68 pro didn’t have the reinforcements on the PCIe slots.
Gpu sag is common this days. I have it you have it. Gpus are large this days even midrange ones. As gamers nexus explained besides looking ugly does not effect the performance.
