I would never recommend staying with an OEM 300W power supply, let alone one that has been used for a few years already. However the best GPU you can get that runs solely off the PCIE bus is an HD7750 . If you're more budget conscious a DDR3 model of the HD6670 would also do a nice job.

The Radeon HD 7750 is the fastest graphics card you can get right now that doesn't require an auxiliary power input; it draws all that it needs from a 16-lane PCIe slot.

Get a GTX640. Its one of the newer ones that dont perform the best, but only using 35 watts i'd say merry christmas
