Today’s top-of-the-line graphics cards tend to get pretty beefy. Your motherboard may not have room for the latest and greatest cards, especially if you’re putting together a slim media center or a portable fragbox for LAN parties. We scoured the internet to find compact graphics cards that are perfect for fitting your needs.
Each of these cards are fairly low profile – they don’t exceed 240 mm (or nine-and-a-half inches) in length – so they should fit the majority of mini-ITX cases. Moreover, and in an even bigger case, using a slimmer card can help with airflow and aesthetics (if appearance is something that matters to you), so there are an abundance of reasons as to why you should use one.
Here are our top picks for the best compact graphics cards.
