I think you will need a new PSU before considering an upgrade. I don't think 200W will be enough.

You'll need at least a 450W supply to power that C2D with a GTX560, I would certainly be looking at 500W+.

Get atleast a 400W PSU, and tbh a gtx 460 would suffice. unless running a GPU intensive application, you may have a bottle neck.

But its hard to tell without actually doing it.

what is this "INTEL CORE 2 DUO I2 AT 2.93GHZ " you speak of?

ah you mean a E7500.

i think that a 560 will be bottle necked by most anything below OC'd E8400 @3.4Ghz

get a new PSU first then get the GTX 560. and don't worry about bottlenecking the card. it will only bottleneck it on some games. trust me, i've been there.
