Default PCIe x16 riser card in HTPC case - 12-15-2009, 13:18 | posts: 200 | Location: Israel

Hello all,

Recently i bought an Omaura TF8 case and I want to install a full height graphic card into it...

a picture worth a thousand words

Now, I noticed it has a horizontal slot for full height cards:

I saw that PCI-e x16 riser cards exist but dont know if they fit.
So i thought I'd use a flexible type, but which one... (or should I)

The one that looks cheap:

And one with EMI shields (at least i think it is) and appears to be higher quallity:

Do i need to worry about quallity? are they all should work the same?

The card would be used is 8600GT by the way (no motherboard yet).
Or should i dump the whole concept and by a low profile 9400GT instead
(CPU might have heat problems due to the fact the card will be just above it)
