http://www.directron.com/5850direct1gd5.html?gsear=1 ATI HD5850. great card and is even low profile :)  just with these bigger cards make sure to have some amount of airflow in your case (i know that may be hard because of the small case but the card does get hot)

Im not sure that sharpbrick understands what low profile means. Also, WOW is by no means a top of the line game-- it has relatively low requirements as far as games go.

Newegg has a low-profile 5670 that is probably the most powerful low-profile card available at the moment.

Depending on your power supply (which you need to list if you want a good answer) the best choice is probably an AMD 5570.

Please list full system specs, including power supply and monitor resolution.

i know what low profile means... what do you think that 5850 is? it is a low profile duel slot card. (EDIT! f the description on the sight... just looked at it more and in the photos it is definitely not low profile...)

As far a card for you kentarius you ya what deadlockedworld said is probably the best

That HD 5850 is not low profile. From the last section of the specification list...

Quote:
General Information:
- Single or Dual Profile - Dual
- Active or Passive Cooling - Active
- Power Connector Required - Yes
- Low Profile - No


Translation:

1. It is a "Dual Profile" card, meaning it uses two slots.
2. It uses active cooling.
3. It requires additional power connections.
4. This is not a Low Profile video card.

The fastest low profile card is technically the Gigabyte HD 5770 GV-R577SL-1GD:

However, part of the heatsink protrudes at the top of the card. It doesn't matter anyway since I wouldn't recommend using a HD 5750 or HD 5770 with a 320w PSU.

yeah and a low pro 5770 but imo its a huge waste of money last time i checked I saw one for 180, plus the OP has a lowly psu so the 5670 is probly the best choice overall

I just put the MSI R5670-PD512 Radeon HD 5670 512MB into a Dell 980 Small Form Factor chassis as an upgrade. WARNING: I had to modify both the card AND the Dell to wedge that sucker in there. You can see some pictures here: http://www.ski-epic.com/2011_low_profile_gaming_graphic...

A side note is the stock Dell 235W power supply seems to drive it fine! (Yay!)
The upgrade made a huge difference in game play over my previous piece of junk graphics card, I am very happy so far.
