Radeon 9250 PCI low profile with DVI only


E

Hello,

I am looking for a vendor that makes a Radeon 9250 PCI low profile
adapter which has a DVI connector on it, not a DMS 59 connector. I am
only going to be connecting a single monitor directly via the DVI
interface, without using extra adapters or y-cables.

I have looked to see if ATI has anything. They don't. There are some
other vendors like VisionTek, Sapphire, Diamond, GeCube, but they do
not seem to have one.


Anybody seen a low profile card with a DVI connector on the back?

Thanks.

You could do what I did when I ran into this issue with an AGP card a few
years back. Buy whatever card you want and just leave the case open. Or find
a card that is narrow and unbolt the slot adapter, with the only issue being
that you got to make sure you don't knock it from the slot while powered up.

Does it have to be a 9250?

This is roughly equivalent in Nvidia....1/2 height FX5200 128Mb PCI with
DVI-I and S Video

Dual monitor capability is an expected feature on low-profile cards
nowadays, so a manufacturer either implements a DMS 59 connector, or has the
VGA port attached via a removable ribbon cable. A few examples at Newegg:

Such cards typically come with a second, low-profile slot bracket that you
can swap onto the card, if you case requires one. If the second bracket
isn't included in the box, you can purchase one separately for cheap:
