I assume these are your specs?

Okay first thing is first the power supply will need to replaced, there is no getting around this.

Make sure your case accepts ATX12v form standard power supplies.

You dont need to pass your $300 budget for sure to just play World of Warcraft, Counter strike, or Diablo 3 (once it comes out... in like 2012? or 2013...)

Power supply recommendation: Corsair 400w PSU, be sure to use the promo code for another $3 off $51.99: EMCYPYX36
