    The only way it can damage you board is if:
    1. You cause a static electricity discharge when you install it.
    2. Install it so badly it causes a short circuit or something (VERY hard to do).
    3. You feed a bolt of lightning through the signal cable.

    Leadtek is a good, well known and widely used brand. I wouldn't worry. ;)
