I don't know the specs, but I'm quite sure it's a 500w ATX psu

Are you clueless about it's brand? If you are, maybe you can post it's label here?

Anything stronger than a HD7750 is likely to be bottlenecked by your CPU. That card also has the merit of not requiring auxiliary power. Even if your PSU is a CM (good for 430W) or an Apevia (perhaps 300W), you'll be able to run that card.

Assuming worst case scenario of a generic PSU that actually is nowhere near 500W.
Sapphire HD7770. $125 ($15 rebate)

Anything more than that and the PSU could become a problem, and I suspect it would bottleneck as well.
