Specs: Windows XP, Amd athlon x2 255 / 4 gigs
Can I install a low profile graphics card into a standart pc slot?
Whats the major difference about these cards?
Is the low profile card somehow worse then the standart profile?
Because I want to buy a gt 730 v2 but I found that zotac low profile 730 v2 is the same and a bit cheaper, so whats the difference?

✔ Best Answer
Low profile is designed to fit in slimline cases. The endplate on the low profile card may not be long enough to fit in a standard slot. Some such cards come with interchangeable endplates so they can be used in either slim or full size cases.

It's smaller. The larger versions of the card typically have smaller fans/heatsinks because they can spread the chips out farther apart.

Are you sure all the specs are the same? Memory configurations on the card MAY be different.
