    low profile graphics cards

    Finally decided to sort my dual monitor solution.

    Quick question, does anyone know off hand what interface a Dell Opti 745 has. I "think" its pci-e but too sure. Also dunno if its x1 or x16.

    I either need a riser card for these chassis (desktop) or a low profile dual head card. All needs to be less than 40 ideally.

    Anyone give me any advice on any of the above?

    Seems a bit pricey for that spec card? Also, it only seems to have one head? or am i being a tard.

    indeed you are

    its a dual head, but theres a split cable that plugs into that adapter on the back.

    Give your local PCWbusiness dept a ring, they should be able to do an educational price

    745 is definitely PCI-E

    Best bet is probably an ATI jobbie with either a Y-splitter that gives you one DVI-D and VGA, or dual DVI or dual VGA (depends on the card)

    MCS Technology Ltd should have some listed under video cards
