I've been looking at different models in the 5-6 megapixel range and was wondering if anyone could recommend one that works particularly well in low light (with minimal grain)? Generally, evening lighting like candles, lamps, etc... Thx!

If you don't want to use a flash in a candle lit interior, you'll need to use a tripodto prevent motion blur from camera shake (and you'll need a still subject).

Most models will even have a problem in normal room lighting without a flash or tripod (what is bright to the human eye is not to a camera's lens). In normal room lighting without a flash or tripod, you'll want to go with a DSLR model with a bright lens to reduce motion blur from camera shake and/or high noise from increasing ISO speed.

In lower light (i.e., candle light only), even a DSLR model may not be able to give you acceptable results of non-stationary subjects.
