Half Profile / Low Profile Graphics Card

Hi, I have an Acer Aspire RC500 desktop:

Pentium 4 3.2GHz, 1024 DDR RAM, Windows XP SP3, INVIDIA FX5200 128MB Graphics Card.

My computer tower is half-profile size, and I need some advice.

I'm looking to upgrade my graphics card, so I can play games that require DirectX 9 and Shader Model 3.0.

Can anyone recommend a graphics card for me? I have a slight concern that I will need to upgrade my OS to Vista, which I really don't want to do... so if anyone can recommend a graphics card that will work with XP - any help and recommendations would be great.

Thanks

I would avoid any card with ddr2 memory as it not fast enough for games.
