Upgrading my graphics card

Hello,

Recently I just received my new pc, here are the specs:

Cybertronpc Spartan
Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) II X3 455 Processor (3 CPUs), ~3.3GHz
Card name: ASUS EAH5450 Series
RAM: 4 GB
350 watt power supply
There are 4 fans (not including the one on the card) that are installed so the system stays very cool.

I am looking to play guild wars 2 when it comes out but Im playing Diablo 3 at the moment and am very pleased with the
results.

Would this be an affordable yet awesome upgrade for my graphics card? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130625

If there are any suggestions that would be absolutely necessary for upgrading, please let me know.

    I do appreciate the answer I decided to get a 650 watt psu from newegg as well as the 550ti 2gb graphics card. From what I read the graphics card takes approximately 250 watts while it is running and approximately 150 watts while its idle. On the other hand I could have gone with a 500 watt psu and still seen good results but I wanted to go with 650 watts just to be safe. Again, thanks for the help and I am glad you told me about this otherwise I would have been out of luck.
