What Graphics Card Should I Get?

I was wondering what graphics card I would need to run most games (specifically Guild Wars 2) with medium settings or better at a stable 35+ fps.

Budget is no more than $200

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: The card will be used for gaming, and running games like Guild Wars 2 at a stable 35+ fps at medium or better settings.

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: Currently have Intel HD integrated graphics card (*** i know), power isn't a problem, will buy whatever i need with the graphics card.

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: K330 Idea Center, i5 core 2.8ghz quad core 3.4ghz overclocked 6GB of ram

PARTS PREFERENCES: dont prefer any specific company, just want something that will get the job done and get it done right.

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Power will not be a problem, but if you could tell me the minimum power supply I would need, and suggest something to get me there, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks for any help I get!!!!!!!!!!!
