Hi, I was wondering if you guys could help me find a different Graphics card for this computer (Dell Dimension 4600C). The current one fits the motherboard, but the case won't close... I have no idea what these type of graphics cards are called but it has this same pin adapter on the bottom of this one: ( I'm assuming those are pin type things... It's the part that connects to the actual motherboard that is the same.)

I'm looking for a relatively cheap one (256MB - 1GB). One very specific thing is that It needs to be small so the computer case can close...
And it would be preferable to not have to connect to my power supply.
Here's the computer:

All I want is the standard blue or white monitor connector on it. I do not need more than one and/or a HDMI port.

Additional Computer Specs:
2GB of Ram
Pentium 4 CPU 3.4 GHz

That's an old PC, and the type of video card connector it uses is now obsolete. To be precise, you need an AGP card (that's the card slot) that's "low profile" (you may need to exchange the metal bracket with the smaller one included in the box to make it fit - just unscrew teh long one and swap out) There are still some cards available though, these will fit the bill:

... and that's about all that's available now
