What is your budget? Not to expensive and not to cheap, these mean different things to different people.

You have a PCI-e express slot, so any PCI-e 2.0 will work (the usual now).

Your motherboard is fine. What is going to limit your selection of cards will be your power supply and budget so tell us more. Also tell us your monitor's native resolution and your processor.

Resolution is important becuase you don't need as powerful of a GPU at lower resolutions. Also 200w is pretty low. I would personally spend 150 on a GPU and 50 on a PSU.
