Low profile pci videocard

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Can anybody point me to a low profile graphics card?
requirements:
pci
require no additional power aside from the pci slot
2 display ports(vga or dvi doesn't matter)
~33% smaller than regular pci card. basically the metal part has to be flush with the card
Like the size of this card but with 2 display ports

or is there a different way to get dual display from an old computer's on board graphics?
It's for an old dell office desktop for a client who would like to expand his working area by adding a second display so he can do more things at once on the computer. The form factor of the case is thinner than your average case and regular sized low profile pci cards won't fit.
i was supposed to go to the office and install this videocard and make my quick $$$

But it didn't fit. It was a little too tall for the case
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Wll 1st off I dont think you are going to find what you are looking for and if that card didnt fit I think you may be hosed. 2 DVI or VGA ports on a low profile I believe is non-existant except having the VGA like in the last pic. do you need 2 ports on a low profile card as in a low profile case and what are the mesurments on the case???

idk how much more low profile than that you can get.

may help if you were telling us what you intend to use it for, where you are putting it and what project its involved in?

He wants to run Dual display and cant you do that with a DVI/VGA splitter?

Something like this?
