I have a Compaq Evo P4(1.7) desktop and I am trying to fit a Leadtek Geoforce3 Ti500 card and it wont physically fit! The current card is a VGA Vanta Card. This card seems to be much slimmer enabling the case to fit.
Any advice on my options to upgrade the graphics card, bearing in mind that it seems to be a slimline...
On the assumption that the slot is the right form, it sounds like you've got a small form factor case that needs a low profile card. Is the end plate on the new card the same height as the original or taller ?
You have 3 real choices. Either leave things as they are, buy a low profile graphics card or the third possability is buy a new PC case. The simplist option is to sell your old card and get a low profile one to replace it but there are not that many of them and a lot of them seem quite pricey for what they are. I am unsure as to whether you will be able to get anything as good as the GeForce 3 Ti in a low profile model.
