Hi,
Can a full sized graphics card fit into a low profile PCIe x16 slot?
Would a powered riser work for this?
Thanks!

The pcie slot is not the issue, there is no difference. The case is the issue. What is the model number?

Well, here's the thing...Was looking at replacing the graphics card in a refurbed pc but it only has a low pro slot. Would it be possible to use a powered riser cable to connect the card and the slot and leave the card outside the case?

I understand there's psu issues as well, but, I'm a newb and just wondering if such a thing is even possible.
thanks, guys.

You don't really need the card in the case, just don't put it on anything conductive.
