  1. You have two problems:
    First, you need a low profile card.
    Second, you have only a 220 watt PSU.

    A 6850 needs 9 - 10 amps just for itself.

    Looks like the most power AMD low profile card is a 6670. Good news is that a 6670 only needs about 65 - 70 watts so your present power supply should be able to power it, but you will have very little power in reserve.
  2. you will need something like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102958 but you will also need to buy a bigger power supply,take all the the specs w,h,l so it could fit in your case also check all the connector that you wil need

    Is the 6670 good for gaming?
  4. since your sytem work on a nvidia chipset you could look at this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121397 but check all the specs and space available before you buy a new card
