Due to your watts I would look into changing that out first. I wouldn't feel secure placing a new card within your case. Because you are currently looking at cards that that only drive power from the slot which aren't a value to begin with as you pay 70% of what it takes to get something good. Also, even with something like a 630 you would have a real hard load on your power supply. You shouldn't have your Power supply stressed to its limits for a extended period of time. I'm not sure if that answers your question but I would go with a new power supply and then re look at what you can spend on a graphics card. Anything less then a 7770 or 650 is probably something that you shouldn't be investing your money in.
I would get something in the 550w range and the power supply I take it would have to be small. Would you by chance be able to take a picture of the inside of your case around the power supply unit I just want to see if I can help you size wise.
Cards aren't that simple it isn't a matter of nvidia versus amd. with both chip makers there are different price points where a card would be the more favorable solution. But it also depends on what one does. You sir could go with either and be just fine.
