According to this;

Your motherboard does not actually have a PCI-E x1 slot. It has a PCI-E x16 slot and two PCI slots. This is a good thing as most video cards are PCI-E x16.
What will the card be used for? Is it for general use and video or will you be gaming? If so then what resolution?

A gts 450 or a 5670. I suggest that you go for a cheap 5750 or 5770 and never look back. They will run on your psu but it will be pushing it knowing that what most people is cheaper than a ordered out pizza and very poor quality.
