if you can find a 4770 i would suggest looking at one of those, if not you can get a 4830 for less than $100

4770 (all out of stock) - Radeon HD 4770, Desktop Graphics / Video Cards, Video Cards & Video Devices, Computer Hardware - SAPPHIRE 100265HDMI Radeon HD 4830 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

EDIT: just realized you said low profile, crap.

zotac has a lowprofile 9600GT - ZOTAC ZT-96TES3L-FSL GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Low Profile Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

The only thing ATi can render faster than nVidia is the BSOD


<<< i like rep :D

i went with the 4650 (58 bones) on a budget and it works with my psu so it was a win win and should have no problem playing those smoothly doesn't have to be top notch.
