    The Linksys wireless desktop PCI adapter WMP54G is made for a standard size computer case. I have a Dell Inspiron 521S - which a thinner case. The card is no problem, except that it won't fit with wide metal plate attached. Does anyone have a solution to make the card fit into a thin case?

    does the back plate screw off the PCB or the PCI card? you need a half height backing plate but these are hard to come by, but if the PC is not going to be moved much you can get away with just removing the metal plate and pushing the card into the PCI slot.

    indeed, what Toxic said, you could see if any one you know has bought a new vid card lately as some of these come with half-height brackets
