No I cannot help you but - gosh, yeah not fun.  Like the "not fun" I am
having trying to get low profile video cards for s-video out.  If it
were not for the SD TVs I would be fine with a low profile case.  I
never thought of the bracket.  So far the only video card I have seen is
the EVGA GeForce FX 5200 PCI - but can't even get it.

cheers!
