NVIDIA GT 610 or 620 would be the most I would put in there, but depending on the age and brand of the PSU, that might even be too much.

You need to upgrade to a seasonic, corsair, antec power supply. I like getting something with a little higher watt 650-750 that has a 5 year warranty that I can use in a later build. Right now I have a 1000w Antec, I cant remember the specific model off of the top of my head. But I know there is nothing I cant throw at this beast and it not handle. A cheap PSU will kill your system, learned that one the hard way don't go for cheap brands!

Good Luck :)
