i/o shield backplate

hi I just upgraded my motherboard and the i/o shield backplate does not fit the new motherboard. how bad is it to not use one? I tried looking for a new one but cant find one for a biostar u8668d board because the audio plugs are not the normal way.

the motherboard didn't come with one? (they usually do have one that matches the layout of the ports in the back)

I always thought that plate was more to keep dust out than anything else

Looks like these shields currently on eBay might fit your board...for around $6 shipped:
