Just bought this card and unboxed it, only to find kind of a nasty-looking (to my eyes, anyway) kink in the PCB.

This is not from sagging, since I haven't even had the card installed yet.

Is this normal?

Might work fine, but I wouldn't chance it considering the investment.  I'd return to the seller and request a replacement.
