also as quite small, energy efficiant as possible without effecting perofrmance, also a card compatible with nvidias hybrid power would be kool

Can you post what the rest of the system is please and include the power supply, The Amps or Watts specific to the +12V rail/s would be good if you know it or just Make and model and we can google it from there. Also what size/res monitor are you using.
The card recomendation really does depend on these things but i would think you are looking at something like the HD4670 or 4770

i think you need a really weak discrete graphics solution to do hybrid, if you have over 500 w you should be able to run a gtx 260, u might have to get a few power converters

Do not buy a core 192 260, get the core 216's. Phys X has been integrated into Nvidia GPU's for some time now (at least since the 8000 series).
