Yes I know, the Vapor-X and Toxic both come with backplates. So why not get one of those?

My current options are a 280X Vapor-X or Dual-X. I was planning to pay the extra ~$30 and get the Vapor-X but then I was told that the Dual-X comes with BF4, which I already planned to buy soon. That translates into a $90 saving with the Dual-X over the Vapor-X.

So my question, anyone knows of a backplate I can buy for this card? The EKWB 7970 backplate has been discontinued. I'm not looking to put a waterblock on this, so it's mainly for the looks, but I'll take the additional benefits that it gives as well.

Any help appreciated.
