When I first came to the list, I got scolded for top-posting - because I 
didn't know the etiquette. You've done even worse by saying you know 
what the standard practice is, and decided to change it right in the 
middle of a thread....

But I do agree, most of the NV5200-7200 cards are low profile. I have a 
Chaintech FX5200 that is low profile, but only has VGA out. It isn't 
much of a problem for me though considering how much easier it is for me 
to get a modeline working over VGA than HDMI.
