Looking for GPU with these limitations...

Hi all!

Hope you guys can help me find a gpu for my machine.

Firstly, the PC is a desktop and is thin cased, so will need a low profile gpu.

My psu outputs a max. of 250 watts power.

I've got 1 PCI-E x16 slot. Not entirely sure if it supports PCI-E 2.1.

This is my motherboard make/model: Asus M2N-VM/S

Looking for a gpu within those constraints. Don't mind if it needs to be underpowered a bit, unless you don't recommend.

My primary aim is solid HD video playback. Notice my on-board struggles a lot with video. I'd like to be able to play games with medium settings. Of course, that depends on the game too though. Games such as Left 4 Dead on medium, would be perfect. Anything better is a bonus.

I was looking at this card: But heard the 5450 is appalling for gaming at any setting.

Guessing I'd be good with a 5550, provided I can find one!!
