60W isn't low for a PCI-E card that doesn't use any auxiliary power connectors: 75W is the maximum. However, it looks like the 4670 may be the most powerful low-profile card available. I don't see any at, but they list a couple of 4650 cards. I like the look of this one: - SAPPHIRE 100253HDMI Radeon HD 4650 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Low Profile Ready Video Card

(Unfortunately, it has a rebate.)

If you get one, let us know how it plays with your 220W PSU. The recommended supply for it is 400W.

i will,im dumb as a rock when it comes to computers but my computer is brand new(3months old) so i think it can handle the a sapphire 5570 for a while since its basically empty,the card uses 45w and i dont think theres much to drain away the W because the computer is pretty much naked,havent installed any hardware at all,thanks tho =D
