A 5670 will run ok with the expectation of a decent 300w psu in mind.

ok,i live in india too,and yes our prices are simply higher than that of newegg.
your budget is a bit low buddy,you can only buy a hd 5570 gddr3 maximum for your budget.
do you prefer online shoping,there is a very decent online store linx-india.
they give the bet prices.
search a 5570 from saphire because it is the lowest price you can find.

And specify your budget in $.
as we live in india,if our budget is rs4000,you should tell a budget of 50$.
Good luck.

Is your budget in Nepali Rupees or Indian Rupees??? For 3-4 thousands you can go for GT220 or GT240 if you are looking for nvidia cards. Those cards are not for Gaming though. It just can run games (not all) at Low settings.

a 5570 is fine with that cpu. any more and you will see no difference as the cpu is not powerful enough. any more money is better off spent on more ram, you should have at least 2gb ram. also that cpu can be overclocked easily to at least 2.8-3ghz.

It would be better if you upgrade your RAM to minimum 2GB and OC your CPU.

Well I wouldnt use the word crap :) 
It is an excellent home theater card which it was designed for
an upgrade on most integrated onboard etc

a gaming card it is not

the cheapest card that can game is a HD4650
try to get 512mb ddr3
you can find them for around $40-$50 bucks depending on sales
I got mine for $45 USA Ebay
it is a 1gb DDR2 (yuck) Sapphire OEM card
the OEM deals are cool
same reference specs as retail but without the pretty alien girl or games
you never play

But while it can game (BiosShock 2 1920x1080 high setting,Warhead 1920x1080
windowed mode gamer settings,Left 4 Dead 2 1920x1080 high settings)
it is still a the bottom end of gaming cards

A hd4670 would be a step up and cheap

manu said the 5570 is best deal in your country so
i am going by USA prices
also gt240 is a good cheap card

the higher the second number in ati number scheme
for example 5570 better than 5450 but 5670 is better than 5570 etc
the HD5670 is also a decent card (my next card)

if you can find a 6570 cheap that is the best cheap card
low power usage

remember that unless you overclock your cpu
it is a major bottleneck for higher end cards

and two more gbs of ram will be a big help

i found this post about OC with your motherboard
http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/245702-29-asus-p5kpl-...
there are preset OC profiles built in (10%,20% etc)
also can change your FSB
for example if your multiplier is 10x and your fsb is 266
you would have 2.66ghz
now if you went to 300 fsb with a multi of 10 you
would have 3.00
google "beginners guide to OverClocking"
your board is limited but does have some OCing abilities
