The best currently available card you can use in your system without replacing your power supply is a low profile HD5570. It will do fairly well for gaming at low resolutions(1280x1024 and below.) This one would be a decent choice;

+1 Simple, blunt answer, but it's the plain and simple truth.

+1 Good recommendation to keep the OP from spending a ton of money.

Ultimately, it surely wouldn't hurt to buy a new system. :)  But the HD 5570 will certainly get you playing, without spending an arm and a leg, or building your own PC. It's the cheap and quick fix to your problem.
