Default half hight vid card with half hight back plate

Hi guys, i need a half hight vid card for a scrawny ass case.

I've seen lots of cards that are half hight, but i need one thats also got a half hight back plate on it, an i cant really tell from the pictures of em if they do (they actually dont look like they do.

whats the word fella's, what can i get with a half hight back plate?

(performance doesnt matter, just price. want to keep it on the low low)

Do you mean "low Profile"? Sorry the "half height" has got me confused.

EDIT: Low Profile looks like this: Newegg.ca - Galaxy 96GFF6VIFCXX GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Supported Low Profile Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

looks good, but do these low pro cards come with an optional low pro bracket? It doesnt say in the descriptions.

i cant see one either tzetsin. I grabbed the manual for the gigabyte (because the manualls usually have an inventory of what comes with your card in the first few pages) and saw nothing of the sort.

i see this optional low profile bracket from newegg for a XFX branded card.

Newegg.com - XFX Low Profile Bracket Kit Model MA-BK01-LP1K - Video Card Accessories

but the graphics card list looks rather old.

Perhaps i'll just have to call ncix and ask about a specific card, i've heard of a couple that come with, but i have to KNOW they do before i order it. Thanks for the help so far guys, Jd, did that gigabyte card come with a low pro bracket?

All the ones I linked to claim to include it if you read down far enough.
