Choosing a graphics card

I have a dell Vostok 200 slim case with a 250w psu.

I want to upgrade to a graphics card but relies that the psu limits my choice.

Any one have idea about what best current card would be for under 50?
It would be for some games but mainly just for normal pc use ie videos / pictures.

Vostro 200, maybe?

These are US listings:

Graphics Cards : Computer Components | Dell

The "slim" version can only use low profile cards, and the power supply limits which ones of those would work.

I don't recommend buying the card from Dell, as their prices on those are high. (That's not true for every accessory that they sell, but graphics cards seem to be dear with them.)

You can get a 512MB Radeon 6450 low-profile card in the UK for less than 50. I'm not sure that it's the best possible card, but it's a safe choice.
