I would go with a 2g 7850 because og the extra memory and it is faster,but it comes down to how much money you want to spend

Well, hard drives are realllyyy slow compared to SSDs.. if you put an SSD in your system, you'd get a lot faster boot times and applications would load faster. :)

Must i buy that one?
The HD 4850 is okay.. but a tad old, I see someone recommending a 5670, I would much rather that.. although your current power supply is my main worry.

With your no name PSU it is hard to recommend anything because its like a time bomb where we don't know when it will fail dragging with it other parts (most likely). As others have suggested, getting a new PSU (a quality 400 or 450w would be plenty) would be a priority, then getting a new GPU would be more appropriate.

Now, if you want to take the risk, I would recommend at least getting a GPU which doesn't require much power. It won't be amazing, but still much better than what you currently have. I am not fully aware of recent models that fit these requirements. I know I did this for my gf for when I want to play games on her computer, I can play fine with lowered details.

As mentioned above, I am more worried about his power supply rather than his GPU or if he has an SSD or not :) I would upgrade the PSU before even touching any graphics card

Edit:
I see people talking about getting a HD7850? Please don't post complete nonsense.. his PSU nor budget would fit that card.

Wow.....you are getting some really mixed (and in my opinion pretty bad) recommendations. Given your budget and power supply find a cheap hd5670 (as some others have mentioned), hd 6670, hd 5750, or hd 6750...that is the order from slowest to fastest for graphics, so the 6750 would be the best if you can find one in your budget.

I would not recommend a 4850. It is now old technology that will use more power and make more heat.

EDIT: That all said, it would be best if you had a bit more money available so you could get a better power supply and a graphics card.

I wouldn't take the risk.
Your PSU goes and then what have you accomplished? Nothing. Dead computer at most. Spend some money and get a half decent PSU, something new that you can transfer over to a new Rig when you have the $$$.

My thoughts.

^ This

People are forgetting that the PSU is the main function of the computer.. if that goes, his whole PC is going down with it.

Put a HD 6750 in his computer and watch it blow up.

Estimated Power usage with a HD 5670:
System Type: 1 physical CPU
Motherboard: Regular - Desktop
CPU Socket: Socket LGA 775
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 2933 MHz Wolfdale-3M
CPU Utilization (TDP): 90% TDP
RAM: 2 Sticks DDR2 SDRAM
Video Card 1: AMD Radeon HD 5670
Regular SATA: 1 HDDs
DVD-RW/DVD+RW Drive: 1 Drive
Additional PCI Card (avg): 2 Cards
USB: 3 Devices
Front Bay Card Reader: Yes
Fans
Regular: 2 Fans 120mm;
Keyboard and mouse: Yes
System Load: 90 %

Minimum PSU Wattage: 244 Watts
Recommended Wattage: 294 Watts

Basing that off of a standard PC.. I'm not sure what else he has floating about in his computer.
