Little more information is needed to properly answer that question.

Budget, intended use, model of PC.

Well if there is no budget as you said does that mean you are willing to spend $1000+ or you are unclear how much you have/want to spend? If there truly is no budget then I would get a top of the line GPU however because your PSU is a little on the weaker side and you are going for medium level gaming I would go with a GeForce GT series card, (Not GTX series because of power limitations) not because of price, but because you are very limited by your power supply. If possible I would recommend upgrading to a higher wattage power supply so you can upgrade your system with a GeForce GTX series card rather than a GT series card.
