I hardly have ANY room! Can you smart people please look at my photo of the inside of my computer (hardly room to even lose an M & M hahaha) and tell me some graphics cards that would fit? Please?
I specially ordered this Radeon thingamajig that some people said would fit.... but it's way too big. Maybe their Optiplex was the "normal" tower size. Mine is the mini.
PLEASE SEE PHOTO (the tape measure shows how much "one foot" is, and the red marker is laying on top of the "enclosure" that the graphics card is supposed to fit in).
The "enclosure" (that the red marker is setting on) makes it so the graphics card can go sideways. If I just insert the graphics card straight into my MOBO slot, then, even though the card is about 4 1/4" tall, it is still about an inch too much for my side panel to go onto.
I MUST use Windows XP, and I MUST use my existing computer that you see pictured. Would you all please suggest some used brands/models (radeon or nvidia) that would be small enough to give me a LITTLE BIT of "graphics BOOST" please?
I know I won't be able to run "modern games" at full throttle.... but I at least want a little bit better than the built-in graphics on my motherboard.
Here is that photo (click on it to make it big):

I have attached a photo of my computer and space inside. In case the photo doesn't appear, here's an external link to the photo I uploaded to a picture-website http://www.imageno.com/17lapys4bdpspic.html If "external links" aren't allowed, then it is okay with me if a moderator deletes out this link, I just want people to see what I am talking about. Alternatively, if an external link is not allowed, then just substitute a "period '.'" where you see the word "DOT"
