I need a low profile gaming graphics card...

This is the computer I am forced to work with:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883113181

Specs:
Processor - Intel Core i3 2100 (3.10GHz)
Memory - 6GB DDR3
Capacity - 1.5TB HDD Capacity
Current chipset - Intel HD Graphics 2000
Resolution: 16:9 (1600x900)

I need a low profile GPU that is moderately, fast, efficient, and can run current games on medium settings. I'm looking to play Skyrim, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and Saints Row: The Third. If you can name an even better low profile GPU that can run games on high without Anti-Aliasing for more money...please name it. I need all the suggestions and advice I can get. Thank you so much in advance! :pt1cable:

  1. With a 220 watt power supply and limited to low-profile AND single slot, you're not going to get much. I think the HD6570, te100 suggests is about the best you're going to get.

  2. get a gt640 its fairly powerful can is able to run bf3 on medium settings
  3. I came across this:

    My motherboard is a microatx Intel H61. Will this even fit on it? (I'm new to modifying/building PCs)
  4. Looks like it will physically fit (may block the front USB headers on the motherboard). I would question whether it will run on just a 220 watt power supply.

  5. its tdp is about 55w(correct if i'm wrong) ur psu should be able to handle it but i think you should also upgrade ur psu
  6. HD 6770 is a good entry level card, im not sure if they have low profile model!

    that should work fine. The 7750s aren't power hungry and should run on just about any power supply especially since you are using it with an i3.
