OK wait wait wait...

You are aware that minecraft is much more CPU dependent than Graphics dependent?

With a Single core 1.8GHz Celeron, you really won't see much gain from a graphics card...

Close to no improvement. Maybe a few frames, but not significant enough to spend a dime on.

250w PSU?

At best it would be a Radeon HD 6570.
