Hi Yagna,

With needing a low profile card your options are fairly limited. I would stick with Nvidia - here are a few options.

PNY VCQ400-PB Quadro 400 512MB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Low Profile Workstation Video Card

PNY VCQ600-PB Quadro 600 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Low Profile Workstation Video Card

PNY VCQ420NVS-X16-DVI-PB Quadro NVS 420 512MB (256MB per GPU) 128-bit (64-bit per GPU) GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Low Profile Ready Workstation Video Card

With the current graphics card (Integrated Intel HD), I am unable to visualize textured slices and they are displayed as gray rectangles. These are the slots for my computer:

1 low-profile PCI
2 low-profile PCIe x1
1 low-profile PCIe x16
