Hello. I am looking to upgrade the graphics on my old Compaq sr5710y and could use some help getting the best card for my power and price budget.

The tech specs for the system are here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01616203&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3867474

I know the system has a 250watt PSU, but I dont know how much power the system as it is actually uses under full load. I have called HP tech support, but they dont have the answer for me. I am looking at a Radeon HD4000 or 5000 option, as long as it has a D-SUB connection as that is what my monitor uses. I am not looking for huge amounts of performance, just something that can handle the Basic Shaders of Second Life, or Sins of a Solar Empire. Monitor rez is at 1440 by 900 at 60Hz. Any advice or help I can get would be great. Thanks
