Help buying a graphics card low performance pc

Hi maybe you guys can help i've been shopping around for a graphics card for my pc my girlfriend wants me to get her the sims 3 but when i try to play it i cant because my graphics card does not support pixel shading 2.0 so time to upgrade... Now to the problem i have no idea how to go about buying one and need some recommendations so here is a list of my pc's specs

Dell Optiplex GX270 (SFF)
P4 2.8GHZ Processor
2 GB DDR RAM
Both AGP and PCI are supported
My Power Supply Wattage is horrible at 160W
System Clock is 400MHZ
