Just installed my GTX 570 into an ASUS P8P67 PRO which is in an Antec Twelve Hundred. Does the video card just sit in the motherboard? Nothing comes down to hold it in place? Is there some sort of retention screw?

The bracket on the end of the video card (the end with the DVI connectors) should line up with holes on the back of the case where the slots allowing the DVI slots on the rear to connect to the monitor, and they should screw in there. You will have to remove a plate for the DVI ports to have access to the outside of the case, the video card will screw into the same place-and the case instruction manual will tell you specifically how to do it. As far as to the motherboard, theres a little clip on the end of the PCI express lane, make sure it is pushed down, then just slide the card into the slot, and the clip will automatically slide into place. Beyond that, there are no retention screws or anything else, just where the card screws into the back of the case and the screw is included, and the clip on the PCI express lane. Make sure you read the instructions On the motherboard when installing the video card, the top PCI express X16 lane is not always the default lane, especially with ASUS motherboards.
