If it is physically too big, nothing can be done unless you cut something off. Actually, you can get a "Low Profile" one if you only need 9200. This kind of card only half width. I got one from ebuyer for £42 click here. You can find the picture from manufacture's web site: click here. Very good card for me, but it is 9200SE not 9200 (slightly slower). Watford sell a low profile 9200 click here, but I cannot find picture and am not really sure it is 9200 or 9200SE. If you find it out, can you drop me a line. By the way, do you have a small PC case otherwise there should not be any problem to fit normal card in.

In what way is it too big?

Are there too many connectors to fit into the slot, or is there not enough space physically in between other cards and equipment?

Make sure you're not trying to plug it into a white PCI slot, rather than the brown AGP slot, cutie, if it's an AGP graphics card, that is.
