I'm guessing you have a built-in video card.
First you need to find out how much power your power supply can put out. You may need to open the case and look, but there could be info on the back of it. On the bellow link, if your power supply is under 400, pick the lowest 2 cards. If it's under 600, you can safely pick the 3rd tier. Abover 600, you can pretty much get any of the cards, except maybe two of them to run in SLI mode.
Take a look here, and pick one that matches what you can spend.

For that, I would stick to the under $120 range. Will give you a huge boost over what you have and will work with your power supply. Just don't buy a 3 year old high end card used for $120, they have a much higher power rating than the modern lower end cards for the same price.
