My System Specs

Now, if you can upgrade your Power Supply from the 220W to at least a 400W, and I assume that your case can take a dual-slot card (the rear connector takes-up 2 or more pci-e slots), then you can get your hands on this video card from newegg: Palit NE5S4500F0601 GeForce GTS 450.

Please note that this card requires a minimum 400 Watt power supply.

Do correct me if I am wrong, I just would not want anyone to fry their system due to unitended negligence. It probobably wont even start with the Palit card, but with a GT 430 or equivelant it might be a different and very short story.

You would have no problem putting a GT430 in there or its ATI equivelent.
Anything beyond that would be pushing your luck, but the 430 would suffice, after all its design is more efficent than the previous 3XX series of OEM GPU's.
