    That mainly depends on what kind of PSU you have. If you could post the information on the PSU sticker, it'd be more helpful for us to make an appropriate recommendation. A typical PSU sticker looks like this.

    You can use any card upto a 7600GT. The 7600GS recommended previously by supersmashbrada will work fine.
