My System Specs

Default

for 400$ you can get a decent case and power supply and videocard, for example Antec NSK 4482B (80$ at directcanada.com and free ground shipping) comes with an Earth Watts 380 that can easily hold a 460GTX, i have such a configuration on a quad core Phenom II 940, 4 sticks of ram, ssd+hdd and it holds it fine. Remaining in the constraints of low profile will limit you at radeon 5570 or the aforementioned GTS 450 which is like 130$ on newegg.ca. But in order to keep that you need to change the power supply too and there will be a lot of headache in there. Best idea is to move to uATX size and your options will be much more diversified going all the way up to the limit of your budget. With a 500-550W PSU you can go all the way up to the GTX 560 Ti.
