    low profile DX9 AGP card

    Hi,

    I need 2 low profile AGP DX9 compatible cards.

    I've found a card with a low profile PCB, but can't find any info as to whether it's actually got a low profile bracket or not. I'd expect it to have one, but I have bought low profile PCB cards before that have only come with a standard height graphic. Modding the bracket isn't an option unfortunately.

    The one i've found is here:

    http://www.microdirect.co.uk/Product...6940&GroupID=0

    But I can't seem to find any info on the MD site, or any other site, and the tech pages on gigabyte's website don't seem to be working.

    Help!

    6200 TCs are supposed to be low profile.. even runs passive if I remember it correctly..

    Not sure about the bracket, probably u could hunt one down with a low profile bracket..

    But changing the bracket is as easy as peanuts, why isnt it an option?
    Me want Ultrabook

    Changing the bracket is fine, it's just modding one (ie, hacksawing the extra bits of metal off) that's a problem
