Looking to upgrade my videocard from a 220W PSU

I have a slimline
http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/hp-pavilion-slimline-s5220y/4505-3118_7-33777300.html

It has an integrated g33 chipset that is insufficient
I want to upgrade the videocard to something a little better
Can you guys recommend me some low-profile, low watt video cards under$90-100 dollars?

Currently, I had this in mind

More about looking upgrade videocard 220w
  1. It does not look like you have space to upgrade, forget the fact the PS is to weak. I don't see a graphics card slot.

    There is a 56k modem inside and if you remove it you can put a new graphics card in.


    The problem with your current graphics card is that fact that you have a 250 generic *crappy* PSU and the card needs atleast 300
