Completely upgrade your system , any PSU or gfx card you take doesnt matter ! Today's Gfx cards will get severely bottlenecked by the such a system.
Put so more rupees and get a better system altogether.
You can't just upgrade the Gfx card in this way.

Trying to upgrade a system from a branded PC shop can be challenging - HP & Dell in particular like to sideline you with proprietary connections onto their motherboard. I think you're going to have to replace the system memory, the motherboard, the CPU, the power supply and add a GPU which isn't going to be cheap and trying to cram all of that into a case that wasn't intended for aftermarket upgrades is a gamble. Decide on your budget, then we'll see if we can get you hooked up with a parts list

In this meager budget you cant take a GFX Card for sure then , you better off with an APU :
Check this build :
1) http://www.amazon.com/AMD-A10-Series-Desktops-A10-6800K...
APU A10 - 6800K

2)http://www.amazon.com/GIGABYTE-GA-F2A55M-HD2-Dual-link-...
Gigabyte GA F2a55M

3)http://www.amazon.com/Kingston-1600MHz-240-pin-KHX1600C...
Kingston Hyper X Blu 8GB

4)http://www.amazon.com/Seagate-Barracuda-3-5-Inch-Intern...
Segate barracuda 1 TB

5)http://www.amazon.com/NZXT-Source-210-ELITE-Midtower/dp...
NZXT SOurce 210 Elite

6)http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Builder-Series-EPS-80-cer...
Corsair CX 430W

The whole build comes to Roughly 415$
This is the closest and best possible build i could see for you.
Graphical performance will be totally dependent on the APU , and its a realy good APU.
Check back and see if you find this build fit for your requirements.

Whenever youre building a PC , remember that if you think you wait for something , until something better than what is currently comes out , well then you will need to wait forever.
The PC's and desktop's industry changes rapidly everyday.
I have been a victim of this , and i waited months thinking i'll get a new PC when DDR4 comes out !
