What is the best gpu for my tiny acer aspire x1700?

Hello and thx in advance for your help!

I have an acer aspire x1700

psu 220w
gpu gt220 lp 1 gb
cpu e7600 3gb core2duo
4 gb ram

i`m not verry happy with the gt220 pasive cooling .. it can play anything but it gets so hot at 100 C in most games and after a while playing at this temp the pc shuts down

i have cut the top of the case were the gpu is placed same as in the pic above seemed to help a bit but not much....

so What could I buy to fit in the case to work as gt220 with the 220psu and if possible with active cooling so i can keep it coooler in games... what could be the best option for me? (changing case and psu at the moment is not an option In the near future i would buy a week pc with a big case and big psu and then put my current components inside)

thank you verry much to you all kindest regards,

at mouse monkey : sry :

so in the end hd6670 should work on the 220w psu as well as the gt220 and I suppose it will be a decent upgrade from the gt220 to hd6670 what coud be the `report` so to say 1.5x better 2x times better ?
thank you verry much!

More like 4x better than the 220. And do some more research on what your PSU can handle - the HD6670 will probably test its limits. Get a low profile HD6570 GDDR5 if you're concerned.

YES i belive i would go with the 6570 since the 6670 it cant be found in a low profile and also could be a bit to much ...
many many thx mr jessterman21

this one looks great i saw many option to get it in spain from pixmania... i have seen one for 70E with 2gb but just one last thing ....
i kept searching and searching for a lp 6570 with gddr5 I can t find it is it because they haven`t put gddr5 in a low profile 6570?? if that is the case i should settle with the 2gb version ddr3...
thank you so much ! this site is awesome!!!

Probably - I don't think manufacturers are currently using GDDR5 in the HD 6570. Even with only GDDR3 you should still get 2x the performance as your GT 220. Also, unless you're gaming at a resolution higher than 1080p (you shouldn't be...), you should stick with the 1GB version - that will be more than enough VRAM.

thx man already got the 2gb version it was only 8E more so i said what the heck why not:) )
i got to say that it runs perfectly with my 220w psu 14a on 12v rail (perhaps this could help others in my situation) and in full load i can barelly hear anything and it never passes 65c temp(playing deusex human rev all maxed out max res of my monitor 1600x900 at 35-45 fps) while with the gt220 felt like i was having a monster truck in my room and got up to 105c temp ) many many thx again!
