Well, 400W is really low, always buy a good quality PSU or then you are gonna have problems, Cards that could work are the ones that don't use an external Power connector, eg. GTX 650, GTX 650Ti, Radeon 5450,5470,7750, GTX 750, 750Ti. Good Luck!

Yes, but it is not recommendable, It is not 80 Plus Certified, worst case scenario, you will end up damaging the card and other Hardware components, due to shortage, and in the long run you will spend more money. Spend more money on a decent PSU so you won't regret it later.

The best card to use in your situation would be the gtx750ti, how ever it is also the most expensive.
The next best option would be a HD7750 (gddr5 card).
