Need Help - Low Profile Card that Supports 1600x900

Hi people,
I need some help here. I need to find a low profile PCIe card that supports a resolution of 1600x900.
Performance is not important, but it must have at least 256MB of memory, preferably 512MB or 1GB.
The card is required to meet system requirements for a Citect SCADA-integrated video stream from an IP Camera.

The most important factors are:
1. Card must fit into current PC... low profile PCIe
2. Card must have at least 256MB of memory
3. Card must support 1600x900 resolution... either through DVI or D-Sub


Obviously, finding a card that will meet criteria 1 and 2 is an easy task, but "Supports 1600x900" isn't exactly something they write on the box.
I've already eliminated the HD 4350, due to lack of resolution support, so don't bother suggesting that, unless you know of a secret way to make that run at 1600x900.

Any help is greatly appreciated, the speedier, the better.

The HD 4350 does support 1600x900.

I'm sorry, but I've NEVER seen ANY ATI card that supported 1600x900. The ONLY cards I've seen to support this resolution are Nvidia cards.

I quick googling of HD 4350 and 1600x900 finds plenty of people saying they are using the card to run a 1600x900 monitor. These are just the first few I spotted;

I only trust what I see in real life. In real life, I'm trying to convert my midrange graphics tests from
1024x768, 1680x1050 and 1920x1200
to
1280x720 (done), 1600x900 (not done), and 1920x1080 (done)

I've plenty of 1600x900 data for Nvidia cards but none for ATI cards. I keep having to test 1680x1050 even though it doesn't fit "in the middle" between 720p and 1080p. Why don't I have 1600x900 data for the ATI cards?

Drumroll please...

I can't actually make those settings in any game when an ATI card is installed. I can however make that setting in all my games when an Nvidia card is installed.

Now, there are several resolutions available to ATI cards, between 1680x1050 and 1920x1080, that aren't supported by Nvidia. But, even though ATI has MORE resolutions, it doesn't have the specific resolution I'm looking for. And I don't plan on messing with the driver to add it.
