Antec Minuet 350 question

Hello All,

I just have a quick question regarding the case in the title.

I'm not familiar with 'half height' pci cards and the review on the case are not very extensive to learn everything I want to know (without holding it in my hand).

Basically, I want to know if you can fit a normal pci bracket in the back of it, and consequently fit PCI / PCI express cards such as

Asus Xonar DX

A mid range tv tuner,

and with regard to expandability

something in region of an AMD 6750 gfx card.

From what I see on 'low profile pci cards'. The bracket on the cards is same size, so if the gfx card isn't as tall as the pci bracket, I don't see anything in the Minuet obstructing the gfx card.

In a low profile card, the bracket is the same size as a regular card, but the length of the card is only half the height of the bracket.

Thanks Abekl, now onto the 2nd part, with the Minuet in mind.

I can see nothing from pictures on the web, stopping me putting in a full profile gfx card, as long as it doesn't extend over the pci bracket.

(igoring power cables which may get in the way, I'll quite happily mod that/find an alternative)
