Can someone help me find a product that has:

 - Graphics Card
 - PCI – Not PCI-E or AGP.  Standard PCI
 - Must BE Half Height!
 - Must have two outputs (Either dual DVI, DVI + VGA, or dual VGA)

Thanks.  I've been looking for some time but can’t seem to find the right product.  It’s for a Dell d/dock docking station.

That only has one video of DVI / VGA and does not look to be low profile.

NO !!  It is a low profile card;  comes with a low-profile bracket; and has TWO VGA outputs (READ the specifications !!)

... the card Callandor suggested does NOT come with a low-profile bracket (there are several low profile cards that don't have low-profile brackets ==> they will NOT work in your case).

From the specifications for the card I suggested:

Packaging
Package Contents Quick installation guide
Low profile bracket BR257
Software and Document CD (VGA Driver & Utilities)
CB15D0003 cable [MD9-pin to DB15(VGA out)]

You simply have to replace the bracket with the low profile bracket, and you're ready to go :-)

Does the Dell docking station require a low profile bracket?

Callandor: yes it does.  It's PCI only, and requires a low profile card.  Thats about all it says.

Then the card in Gary's link should do the job, as he explained.

rebies =>  Did you look at the details for the card?   Note also the comments in the reviews, such as "... I bought 20 of these to run dual monitors at a customers and they work great. I had zero problems. "

This card will clearly do all you asked :-)   [standard PCI;  half height;  2 outputs]

Well I'm a little unsure about that one.  I am trying to power two 20 inch monitors at 1600x1200 - and a S-Video to VGA conversion seems skeptical to me for this.

That's an "MD9-pin to DB15" adapter, not s-video.

Okay, thanks garycase.  Will accept your answer.  I'm still looking through some different things such as if there is going to be an issue running two screens at 1600x1200 off of this.
