Single PCI Port Graphics card for gaming?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Im looking to do a small form factor build, and graphics cards are killing me how they take up 2 PCI slots even though I'm only using one display output. I also plan on water cooling so I don't need the extra space for fans. Anyone know of a Graphics card that only uses one PCI slot that is adequate for gaming? (ie. not a workstation card or under performing card)

I am looking to ideally get a GTX 770, so maybe use that to ballpark performance?

Single slot with 770 performance is a bit difficult, the closest I could find on Newegg was a GTX 650.

Well if you install a water block onto a GTX 770 then it won't take up nearly as much space. How much room do you need, max?

Thats what im trying to avoid... I would say I could just use two of them and SLI them, but that kind of defeats the purpose of the single PCI slot requierment :-p

What about this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814195106

I know its a workstation card and slightly outdated, but how do these do with gaming?

The is pretty intriguing... If i recall, I can throw a water block on this and watercool it with a GTX 660 block and vuala... a single slot low profile graphics card...

Pretty Damn Close to a GTX 770 performance at about 1/4 of the size...

Too bad no one has jumped up just one more card to a 770...

I wonder if you could cut the second bracket off a 770 (only has DVI I) and, with a waterblock, make it single slot
