First of all I want to upgrade my current graphics card but here is the twist.
I have a small form factor PC and a PSU limited to 220watt (Not upgradable) and the card needs to be a low profile due to only having a single slot available..

I current have a Radeon HD 6450 which is fine and dandy, but I really want to start playing more demanding games at decent settings and decent frame rates.

I would look myself but when I did I lost myself looking and searching everywhere ):

So if anyone would point out some better cards it would be much appreciated! (If any....)

First of all, your PSU probably IS upgradable; for example it is probably a TFX or SFX form factor, such as this 300W Seasonic: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (TFX) or this 300W FSP: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (SFX). There are others, but those two have received good competent technical reviews.
Even with 220W, you may be able to run a HD7750, such as this low-profile model: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... as the HD7750 only needs about 56W running flat out.

I should mention I am from the United Kingdom.
So New Egg is out the question.

Thanks for the suggestion thou that looks like a beat card for my system!
If I find it in the UK I will deffo be looking at getting that.

Afaik, Sapphire is common in Europe. HIS also has a low-profile model, but it is thicker as its fans (it has two) stick out.
I think FSP is, and they have both SFX and TFX PSUs if you decide to upgrade that too.
