Default Which half height card should i get?

Hey guys im trying to decide which half height card to put in my newly purchased pc
Newegg.com - Acer Aspire AX1301-U1312 Athlon II X3 425(2.7GHz) 4GB DDR2 750GB NVIDIA GeForce 9200 Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit - Desktop PCs

the cards i were looking at were Amazon.com: XFX PVT86SWML4 GeForce 8400GS 256MB GDDR2 DMS-59 Dual DVI Low Profile Monitor Solution PCI Express x16 Video Card: Electronics

and HIS H435F512H Radeon HD 4350 Video Card - 512MB DDR2, PCI Express 2.0, DVI, VGA, HDMI at TigerDirect.com

and finally Sapphire RADEON HD 4550 Graphics adapter - 512 MB - DDR3 SDRAM

or anything you guys reccomend. Its a ****ty PSU but people have said this worked. Im just making sure it will be compatible before i waste money thanks in advance

Unless you have good proof, I don't think those will work with the 220W psu.

The ati cards need 300-350... 220 is abit low. Not sure on the 8400 though.
