Thanks, I also had a look at that - I'm just worried, my motherboard
won't be able to accomodate wide graphics cards AND keep the two PCI
slots available - I need them both for two tuner cards.

Is there no passive cooling card that won't be too large (wider than
1.5 brackets) that is available?
The MSI GT610 (http://uk.msi.com/pic/product/five_pictures5_2590_20120601173227.jpg)
looks like it would be ok? But I can't find the real dimensions on how
much it would stick out over the next PCI slot :(
Is the GT610 a good option?
Appreciate all the advice.
