I've got a new Silvertech LC11 case. I'm trying to find a graphics card to fit in the very slim space allowed for the card due to the PCI riser used. The MSI NX7300GS card i've bought for it is too tall due to the passive cooling system.

Can anyone recommend a good graphics card with HDMI, that will fit in the small space I have? Or would anyone know if most graphics cards are slim and I've gone and bought the only one that won't fit?

Any help gratefully recieved.

Sapphire/GeCube has X1600PRO HDMI low-profile. 256MB DDR2 if I remeber.
Galaxy or Palit or ;)  Leadtek has also 7600GT low-profile, but without HDMI.

This case? --> http://us.st11.yimg.com/us.st.yimg.com/I/directron_1943...
Then you should have special "raiser card" and then you can mount normal cards...

That's the case. It does come with a riser, and i purchased the pci-e riser too. But there isn't enough room for a thick graphics card.

Also I think I got mixed up with low rise meaning! I was meaning height, not width or depth. So anything over 2cm won't fit.

Oooooo :) 
Maby Sapphire X1650PRO/XT (active cooling - height the same as an blind [I don't know how to name this thing :/ ]) or 7600GS passive (ASUS, Leadtek and MSI has one with heatsink only).
What else...
If you have some place above card then MSI has Radeon X1650 XT with HeatPipe which should be good.
And Gigabyte has 7600GT SilentPipe II rev.3.0, but I don't know if it fits :)  It looks thin.

Oooo!
I forgot about HDMI...
It is hard task. That Radeon X1600PRO from Sapphire has and it's low-profile. I am not sure, but MSi has NX7600GT Diamond Plus. And it look thin also :)
