Would this graphics card be able to run semi-new games like Napoleon: Total War with medium or low quality graphics with high fps? I have a micro ATX motherboard so yes i need the low profile card and im using the stock HP Pavilion Slimline s3400f PSU. Also if there are any better GPU's that could run with the stock PSU then please suggest them.

But will it be able to run on the stock power supply and have pretty good fps?

you have to look at the GPU's power supply recommendation to see if your PSU can handle it and FPS will all depend on the game.

Yes-- that is the best low profile card you can buy. It still wont perform like a full-size card but should be adequate for medium graphics.

You ARE taking a risk in that your slimline has a pretty crappy power supply--but it will most likely still work fine.
