At that price, currently, the GTS 250, although it might be a bit risky with your PSU which sounds a bit dodgy. Otherwise the 9800 GT.

If you're buying this card in two to four months time, ask then as there may be better cards available for less.

Less than 300 W for the whole system, but your 400 W PSU might not be able to handle it if it does not have enough amperage on its 12 V rails.
