looking for a video card

im wanting to add a video card to my computer so i can do some gaming on it, and it not over heat on me. my computer is this.......

http://www.asus.com/Product.aspx?P_ID=V3N9NRSB6AxNMlb8

now, keep in mind, im not planning on doing some serious gaming with it. i just want to be able to play games smoothly and it not get hot on me. hell, as of right now, my Dell 2.0ghz 1gb ram and a ATI Radeon 9550 256mb card runs circles around this one on games. i want to use this one because it has better processing speeds and an over all better computer. my Asus doesn't have PCI-e or AGP. im thinking i will need a "slim" card to fit the small case. i was thinking about a 512mb card to use, but wanted to get some ideas from you computer gurus on here.

i was thinking maybe something along the lines of this

Microcenter has two different 9400's that would prolly get the job done.
