Default quiet/or nearly silent gpu wanted?(same power or more than 7600GT)

As title guys im after a silent or near silent gpu to replace my 7600GT? it must be as powerful if not more, cant be any less than that as i want it to play battle field 2142 at decent settings.
Im not an avid gamer hence why i only want mid range card.

Links and sugesstions on uk sites would be great?

Using the website that jonny suggested, i found these two options:

Sapphire HD 4550 512MB DDR3 VGA DVI HDMI HDCP PCI-E Graphics Card including Low Profile bracket - Ebuyer 36.83 inc. vat

Sapphire HD 4670 Ultimate Edition 512MB GDDR3 HDMI DVI VGA PCI-E Graphics Card - Ebuyer 58.46 inc. vat

These are both silent and much better than your 7600gt. Difference in price is about proportional to the difference in performance, so howevermuch money you have, you could go for either of those.

Both of those cards are good if silent is what you're after.

Thanks guys, probably going for the 4670, just because it will handle light gaming better than the 4550
