You support PCI-E so you can pretty much use any card. Low profile means the card itself has small dimensions. Also, we need to know the rest of your specs to find a good GPU. PSU/CPU/RAM/Monitor Resolution/What Games

Should be excellent. Play any game maxed at that resolution. Very low power consumption as well.

The graphics card comes with a DVI to VGA adapter. And you need to plug the monitor into this card.
