I am looking to buy a video card for one of my computers. The case is one of the Dell slim designs--as in it's about 4 inches wide. When looking at video cards, some of them are described as "low profile" (e.g. this one
). Does "low profile" correspond to a slim tower, or is it just a marketing term for some other aspect of the card? Is there a more accurate term I might look for when examining potential candidates across various sites?
Since I am planning to buy online, I am hoping to get the correct card to start with, so I can avoid having to do returns or exchanges.
