Cards with similar power requirements to 8600 GT

Hello,

I have an old Dell Vostro 200 that I was using as a media center computer/light gaming for when my nephews come over. I had a Geforce 8600 GT in it, but that recently died and I can't find another to replace it with. I was looking at getting a newer card to put in it with similar wattage/amp requirements as I don't want to/have the cash to replace the power supply too. I was looking at a GT 220, but am unsure if it would be more taxing with regards to power requirements, and whether it would be compatible with a pci-e x16 1.0 slot as I have seen conflicting answers elsewhere.

Thanks in advance
