Looking for a more powerful low profile card for media pc.

I have in my slimline media pc a pretty basic ATI passive cooled card.

XFX HD-545X-YNH2 Radeon HD 5450 (Cedar) 512MB 64-bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card

It works great for movie playing and older games, but I am looking to see if someone makes something with a little more umph so I can power some newer games with it. Since my TV is a lot bigger than my monitor it would be cool to have the PC be able to play action games or something. The CPU in the PC is a AMD Athlon II X2 245 and it has 4 gigs of ram, so the video card is where I need to update things a bit. I can play Bastion and Limbo, stuff like that, but how about Batman or something. I dont need to run stuff at some super high resolution with 16xAA or AF, dont care about that, I just want stuff to run smoothly so I can sit back on the couch instead of my computer desk.

It's a smaller case, only 3 inches or so high, not a tower, so it needs to be a low profile card to sit in it.

This is the case I am using.
