You will need a new, trusted and 80+ certified PSU if you want any other card, or any new hardware component for that matter.

The bad news: you'll have a hard time finding even a low-end graphics card that will (officially) require less than a 350 or 400w power supply.

The good news is that it looks like the PSU is a standard ATX one, so replacing it would be straightforward. (The 140mm length is shorter than some, but I doubt that'll be an issue.)

The further bad news is that good power supplies aren't free. I suggest at least a 500W PSU from one of the trusted makers (Seasonic, Corsair, and Antec, although there are others).

Is there any chance of you building a new computer in the next year or so.....or after this upgrade, will you keep using this computer for awhile? The reason I ask is because if you are just needing one for this upgrade, you can get away with a lower power unit, but if you plan on building a new computer soon, you should get a better power supply that you can use for the new build. Thinking ahead will save you money.
