Making a SFF pc, right now have these parts

Case: Thermaltake Armor A30

Ram: Ripjaw 8 GB ram

Motherboard: ASUS M5A88-M

Power Supply: PC Power and Cooling Silencer MK III 600W

CPU: AMD FX 4100

Which graphic card would be good to use? (has to be small enough to fit in case, play recent video games such as skyrim, diablo iii, starcraft ii, etc.)

Also, would I need to buy a new fan? Right now have a cheap AMD fan.

Also looking for the cheaper parts to buy, can be used etc.

Looking at the image gallery for that case, I see someone has an HD 6970 installed, so I'd guess you could fit just about any graphics card into that case. It all boils down to your budget. No point in making suggestions if you can't afford it.

Changed some of the computer parts.

For the parts listed above, thinking of either HD 4870, or HD 5770

otherwise its the HD 6850 (if some games don't work at higher settings.)

or HD 6750 (For single slot, smaller card)

Some questions:

For these games, would a HD 6750 be able to play at higher settings?

if not

Would the HD 4870 or HD 5770 be able to play these games at higher settings?

and also

is the HD 6850 worth around 30 - 40 USD more than the HD 4870 and HD 5770?

or any other suggestion at around this price range, between 60 - 100 USD.
