Hi gustoff,
Welcome to the forum. What we need to know is what the rest of the system is like. These types of systems tend to be 3.0 GHZ CPU's with 1 or 2 GIG of RAM, and tend to come with a 17 inch Monitor. If that is about the same as your system then i would sugest a HD4670. They are relativly cheap and powerful and dont need any extra power from the psu.
Let us know about your system and we can go from there.

The card draws all its power from the PCIE slot. No extra power leads needed :)
