I have an 'Acer Aspire AX1920-ER20P' and wanted to get a graphics card for it that has and HDMI and a VGA port on it. I tried an 'ASUS Radeon HD 6450 1GB GDDR3 PCI-E Video Card' but it is too big to fit in. WHAT graphics card has HDMI and VGA on it that would fit in the 'PCI Express x16 expansion slot' in the computer?

You won't be able to use any graphics card in your laptop. Laptops are different from desktops in that the hardware in them is made to work with that laptop only, you can't use any external graphics card other than the one that's built into it.

The Acer Aspire AX1920-ER20P is actually a desktop PC with a 220w PSU.

If you only want to use it for multiple display purposes, then the following low profile Radeon HD 5450 should work for $9.99 after rebate.

If you are looking to play games, then perhaps the following Radeon HD 6450 for $35 after rebate. Or the nVidia GT 610 for $33 after rebate. However, most sites do not review and compare low performance graphic cards. Therefore, I do not know which performs better in games. The HD 6450 should be able to run fine on a 220w PSU, but I am not sure about the GT 610.

Hmm I've looked at all 3, still seems like the connection ends are still too big .. the casing itself on this computer is only 4 inches in width so the slot opening itself is even smaller :-/ (and yes it IS mini desktop not a laptop it HAS the video card slot in it). Wish I knew what the measurement was for that connection end on these cards.

Those are all low profile cards with the full height bracket attached. They also come with low profile brackets that can be attached, but you will loose the VGA port. To get around that you need to buy a DVI to VGA adapter like the following:

If you need a short card then get the Radeon HD 5450 I linked above or the following Radeon HD 6450 for $32 after rebate which would be better for games. It also comes with a low profile bracket that can be attached.
