  1. You essentially want some decently powered but inexpensive card. The 9400GT is essentially onlt good as a paper weight these days. Look for something in about the 260x up to 270x or 750/750ti line of cards.
  2. Games use more than 2 cores by now, so depending on the GPU, your processor could bottleneck the performance, also mid-high tier GPUs have higher watt consumption requiring of PSUs with higher standards and stability. Otherwise, I'd recommend a GTX 750 ti.
  3. You have to give us the specs of your PSU. If it is very low power, you might not be able to run anything more hungry than a GT630... But globaly, 750ti is a good idea even if your CPU will certainly bottleneck. Maybe it would be cheaper and not so much less powerfull (because of said bottleneck) to take a 7750.

    At any rate, I would probably take a graphics card without dedicated power supply.
