    Does anyone know where i can get a right angled AGP riser, i found loads of sites doing the PCI card one but none for an AGP port.

    thanks for the replies - i'm after the smallest one possible so i think the 2U one might be a bit big.

    Right angled agp risers raise the card a bit and make the card lay parallel to the motherboard

    So it would allow you to put a graphics card with an oversize heatsink / fan into a SFF case? Gothca.

    Hmm, don´t you need a LEFT angled riser card to let the agp card point to the cpu? Those I´ve seen make the card lay parallel to the PCI slots, so they won´t fit in a SFF case, do they?

    Right, but most of the motherboards in SFF cases, like the FN45 in my Shuttle SN45G, don´t have more than one ore two pci slots. Standard atx mobos got five or more left-handed to the agp slot. Consequently I got to use my Dremel to be able to use such a riser card! :D So I would need one that makes my graphic card point to the other direction to make it lay over the cpu...

    Know what I mean?

    If you have a full tower ATX mobo riser, then use this riser. Otherwise it would be useless in a SFF pc
