Like I said, I had a spare low profile bracket for the VGA connector, and
I just used a Dremel on the card's original bracket to take off the top,
so that it would fit as well... (Don't forget to remove it from the card
first! Don't want to slip with the Dremel and grind a few parts off! <G>)
I have created custom parts using my Dremel in the past, so that is an
option too, of course, but it'll take a bit of practicing on scrap
brackets before you can tackle a low profile one with relative
