I recently bought a visiontek radeon HD 4350 graphics card to replace my old one, but it comes with two metal brackets. I need to use the long bracket that attaches to the blue monitor port, but the card is attached the short bracket with only the white monitor port. It's too short and will leave a gap in the back of my computer if I try to install it. How can I change the metal ports?

The bracket is can be taken off by unscrewing the it. The screws should be on the other side of the graphics card.
