Hi,
I am likely to but this graphics card. MSI GT-710-2GD3H-LP

The specs say it's a low profile design.

What exactly is a low profile design and will it fit properly in a standard ATX case? I will be buying Corsair 100R case.

Does low profile relate to height of the bracket? From the picture it looks like it's a normal height bracket with VGA, DVI & HDMI output ports.

Thanks

A "low profile" card is designed to fit in shallower enclosures with shallower rear IO plates. To fit a low-profile card in a normal ATX case, you need to replace the low-profile bracket with a standard one.

On the box picture, the card is shown with the standard bracket fitted. The low-profile bracket would lose the VGA connector.
