    The Radeon HD 4770 is an excellent choice at about $100. However, you'll also have to spend some money and get atleast a 400W PSU.

    I was thinking to get the XFX PVT95GZAFG GeForce 9500 GT 1GB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Video Card. but I wonder if this will work with my computer?

    It will work just fine but will be no match for the Radeon HD 4770. The 4770 is slightly better than the 9800GT.

    I'm not too sure about Dell systems and what PSUs will fit. However, a good 400W PSU is the Corsair 400CX.
