Need a good 500W PSU for Dell Inspiron 530S

Hello community of Tom'sHardware! This is my first ever post on the website.

I'll start here. I recently bought a NVIDIA 9800 GT, not knowing how large it was(...), and I'm pretty sure that it won't fit into my Inspiron 530S. I wouldn't mind leaving the side of the PC open if it's safe. But the real problem is: My PSU is a piece of garbage. It's only 250W and I am in desperate need of an upgrade. Any suggestions for a PSU that would fit in my slim Dell Inspiron 530S?

I'm on a budget also since I'm a full-time sixteen year-old highschool student. I have to deal with what my dad gives me which probably won't be more than $60.

Also, if there are no suggestion/advice you guys and girls can give me, i'd love a suggestion towards a graphics card good enough for my current Inspiron 530S that would run StarCraft II smoothly on low detail even.

Thanks in advance!
