Best Low Profile Graphics Cards - Buyer's Guide

January Edition

This list is based on extreme research and passion for powerful low profile videocards. I use one of these cards (750Ti) on a daily basis for my use.I purposefully omitted numbers and benchmark for simplicity. You don’t need to go anywhere else and look for numbers. You’ll find these are the best cards (reference) for your need and money. This list is based on my honest research and not opinion based.

Please note

1. The gaming cards are here labeled as 'gaming' if its good for gaming.and if its not good for gaming, its labeled as 'Not for gaming'.
