Is there a graphics card that will fit a rack mounted server (e.g. ProLiant DL360)?

I need to format and re-install a rack mounted server that has no built in graphics card. Has anyone had any success sourcing and installing a graphics card that'll fit in the limited space?

Thanks

You can use a PCI video card if there's no a PCI-e slot. Cards should fit as the pci-X slots are sideways.
You can look for half height PCI cards also.

These usually have a riser card option http://www.provantage.com/hewlett-packard-hp-405154-b21~7CMPT0R2.htm that will allow you to add a regular video card.

What's wrong with using the DL360's onboard graphics?

Or buy an iLO advanced pack if there's some reason you don't want to plug a monitor into the back, then you can have remote KVM, CD, floppy etc. over TCP/IP.
