Low profile only

You might be able to go with this one 300w recommended power supply

Get a used Radeon HD 7750, it's got many SFF versions to choose from. It's much better than the NVIDIA and even works with a 250W power supply

I was unable to find a Radeon 7750 in small form factor, but I did find the Radeon R7 240:

ASUS Radeon R7 240 DirectX 11.2 R7240-2GD3-L 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card - Newegg.ca

Granted that this is in Canadian dollars, but the OP could search for it in the UK.

** A little caveat when looking at low profile cards: Most of the ones available only have a 64 bit memory bus. The R7 240 that I linked has a 128 bit bus, meaning a faster data transfer rate. That equals a better gaming experience, (meaning a better frame rates). I would suggest if purchasing a low profile card that you purchase a card with a 128 bit or better data bus.

Keep in mind that low profile cards are not optimal for any serious gaming. They are used more for home theater machines, media servers, and the like. Some of the games that you wish to play may not perform well on a low profile card. Just something to be aware of.

There were actually LP HD 7750s, they're just pretty rare(Sapphire had ones and only a countful of people actually owned them). R7 240 is the next GPU I would go to. But it's price is way to overkill though.

The price is a little steep compared to all of the other low profile GPUs I could find. They were all in the $60 to $70 CDN range, however, they only had a 64 bit data bus, half that of the R7 240.

If the OP could find a low profile 7750, it might be cheaper, and it has the same data bus as the R7 240. Unfortunately, I don't know what is available in the UK, and the OP may not be able to find an older card. The lowest priced 7750 I could find was $189.00 CDN from a Canadian retailer. His mileage may vary.

Edit:

The GT 730 that Thrash recommended might do alright, seeing that it has GDDR5, rather than GDDR3 like the R7 card. It's definitely cheaper.
