Welcome to Seven Forums No matter which of the many cards that will be suggested, I think you should budget in addition Ram with it. Together you'll see much more improvement in your systems overall preformance.
Also providing some idea of your budget will help when all the suggestions start pouring in. Fabe

You have a 305 W PSU.. so this really pulls the reign on graphic cards... The best options are:

Newegg.com - Palit NE221000F0801 GeForce 210 1GB 128-bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
I'm trying to find an equivalent low power ATI card.. but so far no go.

Unless you plan on upgrading your PSU.. that is the best option.

Then I would suggest that card.. not a huge upgrade but it will offer slightly better performance.
