Best graphics card?

My buddy has a Dell Dimension E520 with a 305W PSU. It currently uses a ATi Radeon X1300 Pro 128MB video card. What is the best video card he can use without changing anything.

Re: Can anyone identify this wire?

Thanks for the replies. The card is actually bad we believe. Gonna be replacing it with a card that doesnt have HDMI. Can I just disconnect the wire then?

Can anyone identify this wire?

This is a picture of a friend's Dell Studio 540. What is that wire seemingly going from the graphics card to the motherboard that is taped on the left side to the case.

Hello again, I'm concerned about the comment made by FZ1 that most if not all Dell PSU's use proprietary connectors, and I did look at PC Power and Cooling site to look at their dell psu's. Can anyone verify this? I am leaning towards the psu that was recommended, the Corsair 620HX, just gotta figur...
