Afternoon/Evening/Morning all...

I have a SFF Desktop (HP EliteDesk 800 G2). A rather powerful computer for its size. However, I need a graphics card for it, to thus play games. It has a built in card on the board. Alas, I'd like something a little more powerful.

Something with:
- 2 or more Display Ports
- Low profile (SFF) bracket
- At least 2GB or more of memory

Any ideas?

Thanks

PS: Was not sure if this post should be here, or in the hardware section. So...

You might have difficulty with the 2 ports part, maybe with 2 VGA but the DVI ports are wider and a second port may need to be on a second plate. Some SFF/Small Form Factor and most uSFF/ultra Small Form Factor cases have room for only 2 backplates, can get a little crowded.
This card is only 1GB:

I saw a low profile gtx 1050 the other day on newegg. It had one dvi port and 2 display ports. Go to their desktop graphics card section and put low profile in the search.

DisplayPort and mini DisplayPort connectors are pretty small.


How about Thunderbolt? Does your display support that?
