I just went to newegg's website and looked at video cards, then selected PCI and got here:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007709%20600007853&IsNodeId=1&name=PCI

From there you should be able to see what fits your price range, OS requirements (may have to check manufacturer's sites), and height profile.

When you say "low profile" are you referring to the PCB or the bracket that connects to the rear panel?

I looked there, I just wanted to see if anybody knows of any video cards that support all 3 operating systems that meet those specifications. I don't know what PCB is. When I say low profile I mean one that will fit all motherboards cause I know some cannot fit cause they are too big.

It is not the motherboard that is the question, it is the case.  That is, speaking in terms of height (low profile), not connector/bus.

I have found low-profile video cards that come with the full-length bracket only.  If one needs low profile, one likely needs the shorter bracket.  In one case with which I dealt (PNY), the bracket was only $4, but shipping was $18!

Hi,

The latest card I can find is a PCI 8400 GS from PNY and Sparkle - this will support XP, Vista and Windows 7 @ $40.00
