Hey guys I'm in a bit of a sticky situation. Today my video out stopped working on my PC. It's integrated, but a new video card should get me around this problem. However my PC is a Dell Dimension C521 and it has one of those skinny towers. I can find video cards online that fit it, but the problem is I work from home and can't wait for shipping(of course the video out goes out on the day after my "weekend" of Tuesday and Wednesday). So I need to head to Best Buy. However it doesn't seem to say if they are the smaller type like they do on newegg. 

 

If they don't say does it mean that they aren't? If that isn't the case can you guys let me know which on their website is that type of card? Oh and performance has NOOOO bearing on this. I just want a card that will show a picture on my PC. I only use the PC for work and surfing the web. I'd link to Best Buy, but I'm posting on my PS3. Thanks for your help  

 

Edit: Just remembered the actual name is "low profile" :P

Man, I am having all sorts of problems copying links from the BestBuy site.

 

Anyway, the link above works.  What you are looking for is a card like this, with a half height board and the VGA connector connected by a cable to the PCB.  They come with swappable backplates to fit low profile cases, but you lose your VGA port, or whatever port is connected by the jumper.

 

Lots and lots of options at BestBuy, well over a dozen I saw from a quick look.
