Default Best Single Slot Video Card?

I currently have a GTS 450 and it suits my gaming needs just fine at 1680 x 1050.
However, it blocks my SATA ports on my motherboard, so I'm looking for a single slot solution.

I've read that the 6750 may be good and it's about the same performance as my current card?
Plus I could do hybrid crossfire with an AMD video card

TIA

GeForce GTS 450 vs GeForce GTX 650 – Performance Comparison Benchmarks @ Hardware Compare

Or a 640 would be very close to the performance of a GTS 450 i think! those cards are around 100$ and 80$...
I would really recommend a 650 or a 640,new technology! and they are small.

You are right,the 6750 is about the same performance...But well it's not a super new card :/
You got PCIe 3 with a 650.

Some single slot gtx 460 were made, that's the most powerful gpu in single slot design i'm aware of.

I think the brand was kfa2 or something like that, can't remember...
