You can use any card that only requires a single 6 pin power connector.
Beyond that you can upgrade with almost any standard ATX power supply, just need to be mindful of the length.

without know full system specs
I would recommend either the HD 5750/5770 or HD 6750/6770
also with NVidia it is hard to get one of their lower powered cards to match up
Maybe a GTX 550 but I am not sure of power requirements
Some of the Nvidia guys could help out there :) 

Your power supply is equal to abou a 450w due to Dell rating their PSUs
at Continous wattage and not Peak wattage like the aftermarket PSUs

that AMD/ATI 57/67xx is the sweet spot for performance per watt usage.
stronger cards like the 6850/6870 and GTX 460/560 use too much wattage for
your system without a PSU upgrade

If you do upgrade your PSU then I would recommend a HD 6950 or GTX 560 Ti
