Put a full-height bracket on an AMD GPU? And does branding matter?

Ahoy everyone

I realise my questions don't concern Hackintosh but hope I'm permitted to post here and that this friendly forum can help me.

I'm wondering about the AMD Radeon Pro WX 4100 which I'm considering for my Mac Pro 3,1. I find lots and lots of them but they all have half-height brackets and I need a full-height bracket. Can the bracket be replaced?

Also, under Catalina must the card be AMD-branded? There are many HP- and Dell-branded cards out there, and for some reason they are usually a bit cheaper than the AMD-branded ones. Does the firmware differ perhaps?

Thank you in advance
Philip
