I have a low-profile Windows 98/XP hybrid build I'm working on. Low profile is a bit of a hurdle for this type of build as it not only limits the choice of video cards, but it severely limits the choice of sound cards. I've only found 1 option that fits right out of the box - and that is the CMI-8738, but I don't really want to go this route. The only other card I've found (that can be easily obtained today, at least) that can even theoretically be used in a low-profile configuration is an ALS 4000 card. The one I have has a 15-pin gameport breakout port which can be detached from the high-profile bracket. This part is actually easy as it perfectly fits into a low-profile DVI bracket and can take up an unused slot. But the sound card portion is another story as the 3 inputs/outputs don't line up with any low-profile brackets on the market.
So my thought was, simply take a 3-D printed generic bracket and drill 3 holes in it for the inputs/outputs. Does anybody sell something like that? I had no look cruising ebay.
