I recently bought a video card and TV card as a start a HTPC build, and I was interested to see that both cards had chageable brackets to fit in a low profile case.

So far I've not yet come across a low profile HTPC case that lets you vertically mount low profile cards. The ones I've seen use riser cards to mount them horizonally, and mean you can't use all your slots, eg PCI-E x 1 slot that my TV card uses.

Do you know of any HTPC cases that is designed to use of the low profile PCI cards?

My HTPC is a low profile Compaq D510 desktop. Works fine (noisely) for DVB-S. Has a riser card thing for two full size ( PCI cards to be mounted horizontally. Has a seperate AGP slot that can only take half-height video card - I've got a fussy 6200 in there. Doing it his way I'm able to have two PCI TV cards and the 6200 working together in a very cheap PC. Not sure if that helps - I'm new to this.
