can any suggest a single slot low profile graphics card not after a huge performce.... Its for a secret build I wanna show off...just a tad to low for your standard grpahics cards...plus the motherboard I have is intel based running a i3 3.1 ghz 2100 sandy bridge cpu and I kno linux has a few problems with intel graphics so I thought if I can get my hands on low profile graphics card by nvidia ill have better luck running a duel boot...I really cant wait to show you guys my custome case..nothing tacky with silly lights..

Well its not very secret now...

I haven't used any low profile graphics cards personally, but I know they do exist. You usually get a full height card with a low profile 'front' (?? Is that what it is called? Don't know. The metal bit (shield?) at the front ) that you can fit.

I kno gave some of the secret up lol...low profile as in height...the case Iv got made is 96mm (h) 222mm (w) 328(d)
the mother board I have is h67m-itx that I got from a friend and says he had some trouble with linux and the on board graphic so he bought a basic graphics card and it worked fine.
