    Myabe check out ebay - usually good for things like that, esp. PCI which as stated may be hard to get!

    Strange that the piccy in the above post is an AGP card, although it states PCI though!

    The Gx60 (both standard and SFF) does have a AGP port, would be a lot less hassle to find a low profile AGP than PCI.

    ATI Rage Ultra's are always cheap and plentiful on ebay these days.

    I must admit I have only seen the few they have at work but they all had AGP 4x slots. If I remember correctly it is at 90degrees to the motherboard and the PCI slots are on a riser.

    However I would be concerned about the entire system as a integrated gfx card dying isnt a good sign, however I am probably preaching to the converted but I thought it worth a note.

    Still a mile better then the integrated Intel 845 that is currently being used. Madman never said he wanted a good card, just a working one.
