    Depends what you're looking for.....

    I have a 512mb board, at home....Dvi output x 2 .... ATi Sapphire 1800XL (I think!)

    Doesn't seem to want to work with my new moboard. (That'll probably be cos it's about 6 years old! Doesn't time fly???) I'd be happy to let you have it at mate's rates, and if it didn't work, give a refund.

    you can run almost any card PCIE x16 in a 1x slot. You can buy an adaptor or modify the socket to allow you to plug your card in!.

    like this: LinITX.com - PCI Express X1 to X16 Extender

    The card of course won't run as well.

    It needs to work with Windows 7 64-bit, so I think the old card is unlikley to have drivers - thanks anyway

    I'll try one of those adaptors though!

    I've got a KFA2 MDT x4 card, but it won't seem to do a 3*1 line up as it states in the blurb, so I'm back to a x16 dual-dvi card, and finding some way of adding the thrid monitor. What a pain.

    Would the new GeForce GT 520 PCIe x1 card from Zotac be any good (P/N: ZT-50608-10L)?
