    Half Height Graphic Cards

    Im in need of a graphics card that is half the height of a normal graphics card to fit in a slim chassis PC. It can either be PCIx or PCI. Im wanting to output to 2 monitors but NEC have shipped a crappy PCIE graphics card which will only let you select either the onboard or the PCIE card. The card only needs to be a 64Mb, nothing too powerful as its for a machine at work.

    Thanks in advanced.

    We sell a couple of cards that are half height and dual output? Is VGA and DVI ok or no good?

    I have one here I bought a couple of weeks ago off eBay and didn't use (turns out I needed a full-height one after all). I've got no use for it, you're welcome to it. ATI chipset, PCI Express, single DVI output - I have a spare DVI/VGA converter if you need one. PM me your address and I'll try and get it posted this afternoon if you want.

    I just bought a XFX GeFORCE 8400GS (256MB) from Ebuyer for not very much. You need to buy the bracket seperatly mind. As I am cheap I bought the older 84p bracket from Scan and 'adjusted' it with a file to fit around the DVI connector

    You would need a second adapter plate to be able to use both the DVI and VGA (DVI and S-Video are on the same plate).

    Just get a DVI -> VGA convertor, they're cheap and easy enough to fit and do the job plenty well enough... Got 3 in the box I'm using right now

    Re: Half Height Graphic Cards

    You can buy them from most pc shops just an adapter that you plug into the dvi port and then the vga into that.

    Or you can probably get a lead that is vga to dvi allready.

    DVI-D is digital only, if you have a DVI-D port it can only output to a DVI device.

    DVI-I outputs a digital and analogue signals hence you can only get DVI-I to VGA cables.
