    Ordered kingwin PCI USB card - didn't recieve the low profile card bracket!

    I just recieved an order I made with newegg, but the kingwin pci card did not come with the low profile bracket that it is pictured with...

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16815113001

    Has anyone ordered one of these and recieved the bracket? I am pretty upset, as I could have gotten a number of other USB PCI cards without the bracket for much cheaper than this!

    just remove the bracket and use twist ties.

    or take the existing bracket... bend it in the appropriate spot... cut it to length... and then cut a screw slot in it... and you have a homemade low-profile bracket. you could do it in just a couple of minutes easily. and if you mess up, well then go with twist ties

    or if you're really that concerned about it, just email newegg. they've always given me nothing but the best customer service (including RMA'ing a hard drive even though it was clearly stated as "manufacturer RMA only" in the item description) so I'm sure they'd be willing to help you out, or at least refund your money or something... especially since the small bracket is pictured in both of the last 2 item pictures...
    But don't take it from me! here's a quote from a real, live newbie:

    The whole point of ordering that one was to avoid having to make/modify a bracket. I am fully capable of making it work, but I paid for one that was supposed to come with the bracket!

    My question was simple. I was wondering if anyone else had ordered it and revieved it with the LP bracket.

    I ended up calling newegg and they said they will send me out a bracket. Hopefully I recieve the correct one.

    Thanks for the help.
