So, last Christmas I was fortunate enough to get a Gateway DX4822.
Gift horse, mouth, etc.

It has onboard GPU that does ok, but I would like to play some newer games.

It has an open slot, but if possible I would like to avoid buying a power supply as well. Any recommendations for a GPU?

Well, it comes with a 300W PSU and thus I'd suggest an ATi Radeon HD 5670.

I'd personally go with a 5670, my second choice would be a 4670. Both use about 63 watts of power and would work with your 300w power supply (they recommend more, but it would be fine).

5670 about $90

4670 about $75

If you don't want to upgrade your PSU then HD5670 would be a good choice... :)
