Graphics card for HP slimline 3300t PC

Hello - I am trying to hook up my compact 3300t with dual monitors, however it is becoming increasingly difficult for me to find any kind of graphics card that will simply fit in the machine. I know how to install and hook everything up but I cannot find a decent graphics card that supports Vista and 2 20" widescreen monitors that ALSO fits my machine. Any ideas or suggestions of what I need? I even called HP and they sent the wrong card . . . I'm getting a little frustrated to say the least!

    Here are the monitors I have.



    HP w2007 20-inch Widescreen Flat Panel Monitor

    I just bought a low profile card - this would be my 3rd one

    :( really hoping it will work. Just to confirm this is an HP slimline PC not a compaq. Thanks for all your help!

    I got mine working fine but it wasn't easy. HP told me the same thing prior to my purchase and sent me the wrong card. I was ready to return the whole thing and go back to my old computer! The only thing that will work for the slimline computers is a low profile bracket. The graphics card I got is a decent mid grade (bout $150) but it works and that's all i care about :) If you want the product number I can easily get that for you but if you're into heavy gaming it probably won't be the highest quality you can get.



    I love how the slimline looks but its impossible graphic card options are limited. I'll probably go back to the big bulky PC or a MAC when I upgrade.

Most cards, that are skinny, will have or you can buy a low profile braket for it, But look at the card, if it looks like it is skinnier than most then it will probably fit.

Graphics card update


if you use windows 7, you should be able to enable dual screens by right clicking on your desktop, and click screen resolution, on the top right, click on detect (assuming you have your video cards enabled and the monitors hooked up). some new dropdown menus should appear for choosing what you need. hope this works for you.

Unfortunately, there is no way to run on board graphics with your dedicated graphics card. One will always be disabled, (would need a hybrid SLI/Crossfire board for that option).

You will need to upgrade to a graphics card that has dual DVI & or VGA outputs built in to be able to hook up 2 monitors. (output type of port depends on what type of connector you have on the monitor cables)

Switch to alternate 2 computers and dual monitors


What you probably want is a KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) switch that supports dual monitors. It's a simple device that allows you to plug multiple computers into one set of monitors, keyboard, and mouse and switch between controlling them.

I don't know of any that support mixing analog and digital connections for the monitors, but using a VGA to DVI adapter for one of the monitors should solve that problem cheaply.
