    I'm desparately trying to find a card that will fit in the Dimension
    compact box to extend my desktop to 2 monitors. It would presumably
    need one of the ports to hang out on a ribbon as the box isn't wide
    enough. Anyone recommend such a card? Not a gamer, simply need the
    extra desktop space.... (I have one dvi and one vga monitor)

    This card will fit, but I'm unsure about
    whether the
    Dell will run both videos at the same

    But that only has S-video and DVI, not DVI and VGA.

    The PC came with the Radeon X300 - the X600 doesn't look much
    different. I suppose I could use something like this and just take the
    full length bracket off:


    Wish I hadn't ordered the compact case...

    That looks like it would probably work.
