Low Profile VC for folding

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Are there any low profile video cards out there that can fold? I have a Dell that was given to me, it is in one of those really thin cases. I have the dual core CPU folding, but I want more PPD out of it, so I'm looking for a VC to throw at it, but I don't know where to find a low pro card that will fold? Any help would be awesome!! Thanks for the help fellow folders!!

OK, so now the question is, which 430 do I go with? Microcenter has a store about 10 minutes from my house, so I prefer to pick buy stuff there (that way the wife doesn't know I got it, she won't see a package be delivered and throw a fit about my parts addiction), so here's what they have, question is, which to go with???

http://www.microcenter.com/search/search_results.phtml?N=4294966937+4294946479+4294946172+4294953267&

Will there be any big differance in the PPD or OCing ability of these cards? Thanks again for the help!!!

I would go with EVGA, less expensive, great brand, and lifetime warranty with good support. All the OCing abilities will be pretty close on a card like this.

OCing wise, you won't find a major difference between brands. Go for the one with the best warranty. smile.gif

No lifetime warranty on the EVGA.It's a 3 year warranty.Anyhow I would still go for the EVGA.
