Upgrading a Radeon hd 4200

I'm trying to upgrade a radeon hd 4200 graphics card and I need help. For x-mas, I'm able to get a 950 watt power supply. My current power supply wattage is 200-250. Would this upgrade frames at all? I'm sure it would, I just need further assistance and maybe some suggestions. I do have a low budget, maybe $160. My goal is to play Black Ops 2, MW3, BF3, etc... With at least 60 fps on the lowest graphics settings or better. Keep in mind that my budget is low, but suggestions would be very much appreciated. If needed, you can ask me for all my specs. Thank you.

What is that "950W" PSU?
Something like a 380W Antec Earthwatts can easily run a HD7770, which is within your budget and will be a night and day difference from the old HD4200.
You should be able to play on mostly "high" settings with that card.

Yeah, I looked into it more and thought the same thing. For 150$ though, what would you recommend I get to increase frames and have "ok" graphics?
