MSI Radeon HD 6450 DirectX 11 R6450-2GD3H/LP 2GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Passive Low Profile Video Card

Pros: This runs 1080p at about the same frame rates as the A4-3400 APU (aka 6410D) does at 720p. Not a huge upgrade but it is better. No fan, nice size. I saw a review that said this card doesn't do AMD crossfire but mine does - I had to turn it on in BIOS as "surround" or some unintuitive thing that made both cards turn on at boot. You really want to do this, too - it isn't that much better than the onboard alone, you need them running in parallel for a decent bump.

Cons: It can feel worse if you are trying to double your resolution from 720p to 1080p, and my windows experience score actually went down from the A4-3400. Heaven benchmark was about twice as high, and I *can* run 1080p now which I really couldn't before.

HIS Radeon X1550 DirectX 9 H155HMF256EL1N-R 256MB 64-Bit GDDR2 PCI Express x1 Low Profile Ready Video Card

Pros: Works where others have failed before it

Cons: A bit pricey for what it is

Other Thoughts: I installed this the same way as others have suggested - set BIOS to 'Auto', install, stay plugged into integrated card until you can get back into windows and disable the onboard in device manager. Worked like a charm, very satisfied. Fan is reasonably quiet, performance is pretty good.
