Requirements ------------------ Low priced, ranges less than $150 Does NOT require an auxiliary power supply Can play the latest games at (preferably) high settings Will last for another 3 years or so
Any help will be appreciated

yup amuffin is right just go for radeon HD7750, just check the brands and get the cheapest one, enjoy
Your CPU is very bad, so as amuffin suggested the 7750 would pretty much the highest GPU you should be aiming at.
Thank you for your advice. What brand do you consider as the best?
Doesn't really matter, whatever is cheap.
If you mean a CPU brand, probably Intel. What are you looking at spending? For a Radeon brand, I'd steer clear of Sapphire. I've just had one die on me 4 months after the warranty expired. Another died 6 months after and my first Sapphire Radeon (a 9700) died on the same month the warranty expired! I've learnt my lesson now though, cheap for a reason. Same goes for Powercolor. VTX3D are the same guys (Tul Corporation). I've seen a lot of problems reported with HIS cards, but I've never owned one. Asus, MSI and Gigabyte are all solid choices.
