Would a 250 power supply be able to handle the Geforce GT 630. I am currently using Geforce 8400gs that requires 350 watt power supply, but I havent run into any problems. The GT requires 50 less watts.

While not great PSUs, if it were outright junk the company using it (HP?) would be plagued with warranty problems. If it could handle the 8400GS, it should manage the GT630.
(The Bestec -12E is junk, and has vicious turn-on spikes that kill motherboards. I believe eMachines used them).
That sounds right, I got the 8400 gs from my brother in law who used it in an E machine computer. About a month after he installed the 8400gs his computer started resetting itself and then it outright refused to boot so he gave me the card.
