Can you buy Graphic Cards in different profiles/sizes, to fit micro ATX Boards/AGP slots in narrow/thin desktop cases.
Thanks,

yes but they are usually not powerful graphics cards. most often they dont have a fan on them either as they are designed for these small case environments and usually run very cool. dont expect anything beyond geforce4 mx in the smaller profile graphics card in which case if youre planning on putting a new motherboard in you could just use an nforce2 IGP based board. that is if youre running an AMD platform. If youre running intel then you will have to use an add in board because there are no decent onboard graphics systems on any intel chipsets.
