win 7 x64 ultimate sp1
 
 

For that price I would go with a gt640 u can get them in a single or dual slot config and they are rather short.

first off if you look for a different style after market solutions it would help

also be a good idea to measure how long of a card you can use there are also LP low profile cards
most of the time basic card is 10" the big boys goes about 11.5 to 12" long so pretty much I would do midrange card maybe hd7790 short not to long maybe 8 inches ?

Newegg.com - DIAMOND 7790PE51G Radeon HD 7790 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card

LOL, he said $100.

So winner here:

MSI R7770-PMD1GD5 Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card - Newegg.com

Length looks very reasonable, thickness 2 slots.... and yeah huge upgrade from your current situation.

Otherwise if Nvidia fan:

See this to help decide, keep in mind the 7770 is probably even ahead further since it's the GHz edition:
