What kind of performance do you need?/how much are you willing to spend?

If you are just looking for basic video watching performance a 4550 is a good choice.

The best performing low profile card for you would probably be an ATI 5570 around $80.

Power use of competition in a test system:

(the 9600GT/9800GT are the most powerful low profile options but probably wouldnt work on your PSU)

if I throw in the 5570 will it be able to play starcraft 2. Right now the 530S can barely play it with everything set to low. Thanks

yes you should. depending on your resolution you might be able to play it on high settings.
