You can run that from a 500w easy...lower than that will depend on the quality of your PSU...try it before you buy another. If you have random crashes when the card gets a load you'll know the problem. It vents heat out the back, so as long as you have a decent airflow in your case you are good. The closest thing to that card in performance from nvidia is the gtx260, and they start at around $160

The card 4870 is ideal in that price range.

Regarding the PSU:
A 400w can run it but a 500w cannot!

I mean a quality 400w PSU can run it but an el cheapo 500w cannot.

Mention your PSU.

It comes down to the PSU, the 4850 makes the most sense, but the 4670 is the best if the PSU becomes a problem...

Best card in that range would likely be this one:

HIS H487QT1GP Radeon HD 4870 1GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It's 154.99 after mail in rebate of $10.

If you use Bing.com cash back, newegg is currently offering 3% cash back so the math makes it work out to...

$164.99 starting prices
-$4.95 bing cash back
-$10 mail in rebate
=================
$150.04
