I have an 8600 GT-a low end card by most accounts, but it does what I need it to do-for now. I am not interested in installing a large card into my system as I do not play that many 3-d games anymore (may change when Battlefield 3 comes out)
Which cards would offer an upgrade in terms of 2D(decoding) performance and have a marked increase in 3D without a major increase in power consumption?

hmm, a 5670 would be your best bet if you ask me. I think its about twice the performance with close to the same power draw if not less.

You need a low power card or low profile card?
what is your current monitor and PSU?
