Upgrade gpu or stay with integrated?

Hello, I have a Lenovo h50-50 and it only has a 180 watt psu. I noticed how I put a higher demanding gpu (GeForce 8400gs) and it ran fine. Are there any gpu's better than Intel he 4400 graphics that can work fine with my PC? Thanks in advance

You're better off using that Intel HD 4400 than the 8400 GS. What's your budget? What you'll be using it for?

A 180W PSU? Stick with the integrated graphics.

Oh ok my budget was around 30-50 bucks for a card that'd be better than integrated but fine on the 180 and I would get a new psu but it won't fit though

Stay as is, for $50 on a GPU I doubt you'll get any improvement in performance on what you already have. And if a new PSU won't fit (as is usually the way with manufacturer cases like Lenovo, Dell, HP etc) then there's nowhere near enough juice to run a sparate card anyway.
