pcie slot reinforcement?

I'm about to build a system that would be move from time to time (4-5 times a year, dorm to home). I don't know if I should consider buying a board with pcie reinforcement or not. I'm planning on getting the Msi Rx 480 gaming x.

It's just cosmetic, really.

reinforcement isn't needed if you're the one handling the system and thus can be as careful as possible with it. If you're going to have people move it along with your other stuff for you then the easiest thing to do is to just pack some packing material into the system so that things cant move about. Removing the GPU from the system is another alternative to get rid of the possibility of slot damage all together.
