Ok I've looked where I can to find the ideal card for my budget, I got about 80 bucks and I want a low profile PCI-E card with and HDMI port on board. The closest thing I've found is this

A 9400GT isn't really much for gaming.
About the only thing I found is this 9600GT:

The only problem is, it is $120, unless you're lucky enough to get the rebate, which would lower it to $95. You will also need to buy a separate HDMI adapter.

I did not find a low-profile version of the HD4670. Vochtige may have missed that requirement in your post.

its cool thanks for the help, this is what I get for going for a slimmer case for added room T_T

:p  i was considering a slim case myself, but actually there are a few gaming cards (rare named brands) that produce the low profile ones.

maybe you can try to pull out the side panel and saw some iron of the regular profiles :p 

good luck with your slim case

actually I found a few guys that helped out and found a low profile Video card that suited my needs. I aslo learned of the exsistance of hdmi to DVI , so I'm gonna have to put the hatchet and flamethrower away.
