Question pci x1 blues!!

hi! i got a HIS X1550 pci x1 compatible GPU for my dell optiplex 210L. the problem is that the GPU has dual DVI and hence doesnt fit in the pci slot unless i cut the extra one.is there any way out like perhaps a slot extender or something??cutting the gpu might be tough!thanx!

i think his optiplex only accepcts low profile cards and he has a normal card with dual dvi

i also think he means pci express 16x or does the connecter really look like this in actual size
