There isn't much that will fit in those things, that I know of. Even some of the low profile ones may be too big. When I had a Slimline, I had to "mod" the case a bit to even get a low profile card to fit.

Newegg.com - SPARKLE SX98GT512D3L-NM GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

May need an upgraded PSU, but this is about the best (since I last looked), that you can get for a low profile card.

This is a decent card and also lets you connect two monitors.

That's true, is not slim enough and it probably will cut the flow of air in the PC causing it to overheat. i would go with the one up there ^.
