Getting a new graphics card

Hello, I have a Dell Inspiron 530 and I'm looking to upgrade the graphics card along with the PSU. My computer contains:

PCI: 2 Slots
PCIe x1: 1 Slot
PCIe x16 (Graphics): 1 Slots
300 watt PSU

Now, the graphics card I card I currently have is intergrated, so I don't know if that will affect anything, but I thought I should mention it.

Documentation on the computer^.

I have the core duo processor, 6Gig Ram, and g33 chipset family.

I'm looking to spend around 250.00USD or less. I'll be gaming with this card. Any help is much appreciated.

    I wouldn't go anything faster than a GTX460 or HD6850 and even then your going to have to overclock your processor a bit to get the most of even those cards.

    You won't be needing to spend $250.

    Will there be any cons to having a graphics card that my proccessor does'nt fully support?
