I bought a low profile ready SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5570 that arrived this last week, but it didn't include the low profile bracket which I need to install it in my slim case. I called the online retailer thinking they had made a mistake by not sending it, but they said if it isn't in the picture it isn't included, so I need to find one myself. I've been able to find loads of low profile brackets for HDMI x DVI x VGA, but none for DisplayPort. So my question is, does anyone sell a half height DP x DVI x VGA bracket? If not, can a bracket meant for HDMI be modified to fit DP instead?
In case its needed I'm running a Gateway SX2800-01, everything factory except for the gfx card I'm trying to install.

I would be curious as to exactly which Sapphire card you purchased (provide a link if you can). I don't think I've ever seen a low-profile ready card that included a displayport slot.
You could just remove the d-sub, saw off the bracket (the card doesn't really need to be screwed down for it to work) and run the d-sub cable out another slot. Kind of rube goldberg but it will work just fine.
