Got me a XFX geForce 6200 AGP 4x/8x card last week, comes with a normal
size bracket with VGA, DVI and S-Video connectors.
Remove the bracket, and you have a low-profile with s-video and DVI, VGA
on a separate plu with small flatcable.
Unfortunately it did notcome with a low profile VGA bracket *or* DVI to
VGA plug, but I has one left over from a previous experiment, so I am one
happy canmper...

And again, it Just Works(TM)...
