By low profile system, i'm assuming a low profile card? If so, then here: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/1gb-asus-hd5570-pci-e-21...(x16)-1600mhz-gddr3-650mhz-gpu-400-cores-d-sub-dvi-i-hdmi

This won't play WoW very well on high resolutions though and starcraft will have to be seriously turned down.

Yes, I would only recommend the HD 5570 as linked above.

Ironically, if you had a less powerful CPU, like a dual core instead of quad core I may have suggested the more powerful HD 5670. However, quad cores consume more power than dual core CPUs and your PSU is only 270w.

so if i replace the psu to something with more power i can get a better gpu

Theoretically yes but micro-atx PSU's are hard to come by, relatively expensive and not necessarily more reliable.
