THEY SEEM LONGER THAT THE LOWPROFILE COMPUTER I HAVE WHICH IS MINI. there not as long. if you look my computer up acer aspire x1700 the graphics card and modem are low profile cards. i think that metal part is gunna be sticking outta my computer and will not fit. do you understand what im saying?

The ASUS card in the Newegg link is the same card that's in your Amazon link.
They include a low profile bracket.
