Any video card under $200 can easily be powered by a reliable/decent 500W PSU right now as long as the PSU is rated to supply the necessary amperage on the PCIe power connectors (if PCIe power connectors are required, some very efficient cards do not <~$130 range usually.

Nvidia 660, 750/750ti and 760 if it is on sale.

AMD 265, 270, 270X if it is on sale.

All of those cards would serve you well and be able to run any games at 1080p with medium or higher settings.

Here is a nice R9 270X for $189, great deal!

The only thing you need to do before buying any card is open your hp and measure how much room you have to install a card. Measure the length of space, last thing you want is to purchase an 11" card only to find out you have 10" of space.

Unplug your pc, open up your case, look at where your current card is installed, get a measuring tape and measure from where the current card's I/O bracket is towards the drive cage at the front of the case. That way you will know how much space you have for a card.

No worries, and if you haven't bought a PSU yet, get this one. XFX 550W, made by Seasonic, the best brand for PSU's, it's $49.99 so it won't break the bank.
