    I have this and it can do MW2 and Valve's Source games. Haven't really tried to use it with newer stuff.
    Edit: I posted the wrong thing, the one I got is currently out of stock. Its an HIS Radeon 4670.

    Since you have a 350w psu, you're quite limited to low end gpu.
    considering that your actual gpu is using up to 60w, I wouldn't buy recommend you to buy something that goes beyond that.
    according to this article:http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-2.html the best card you can get is a 6670 with your psu.

    a second option could be: (psu+vga ... 520w and 6770 )
    http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814121474 (110$ -> 20$ mail-in rebate)
    http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817371030 (60$)

    in this second option, I placed a 520w psu which is more than enough for your rig, you could actually lower your cost by getting yourself a 450w psu, but it could still limit your building option if you decide to rebuild your comp in a few year and want to keep your psu.

    look like you might have a problem with your bios battery
