The HD7750, tiny amount of power draw (doesn't require any power cables) and should be decently powerful for light/med gaming.
Suspect the N64 emulator will be constrained by the CPU before the graphics card.

a pci 3.0 card in that low spec of a system... not doubting you.... just bewildered that that would be an option...

Any modern card will be PCI-3, it itself is not an indicator of performance.

You could go even lower and get something like a 6670.
Sapphire 6670. $65 ($15 rebate)
