Remember all the cards that run without external power still draw that power from the power supply but just through the mb slot.

40$ for a new power supply, and 100$ for a new card, it can go higher if you see that its needed

If you get the $30 PSU jnkweaver suggested, then the best you can get within your budget is an Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Some people are a bit cautioned by the Corsair V.2 Series PSU as some claim it uses cheap parts, tough it has 3 years warranty. If you are concern about this, then for a bit more you can get the Antec Basiq BP500U 500W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
