Long story.
My PC died, we then resorted to a laptop with an extra monitor and key board ect.
that died.

I bought an ex Govt Compaq from a local pc recycler.
It's an old P4 3.4ghz with hyperthreading blah blah blah pc. So it old tech these days.
I rapped the corsiar ram from my old dead PC

My old pc had an upright case the new replacement is a low profile flat case.
I want to use the 7600GT graphics card with a passive cooling heat sink from the old PC as i want dual monitors and to at least be able to play some of the old games i've still got.
Trouble is it doesn't fit in the case.

A new lower spec low profile AGP card is almost $100, Which would then double the cost of the PC.

I found these on fleebay
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Flexible-AGP ... 0714144819

The idea being to lay the card down in the case and make a rear bracket to hold it in.
then cut a hole in the case lid for an extra cooling fan to deal with the extra heat.

Any one bought from that seller or used that or a similar product?

After some more looking, It seems as though the compaq case is Micro-ATX, it also seems as though Micro-ATX mother boards will mount in a ATX full tower ATX case.

Might wait untill the 1 month warranty is up and just ever thing in to the old case.
