A 7300gt is ok, but I think you could get a used HD 2600pro for around that price, better than a 7300gt

with a 250w psu you'll be hard pressed to run much of anything other then stock. a simple upgrade to a rosewill 450w would be fine, and you can get them for around 30-40 bucks.

if you really need an upgrade, i suggest spending about 500 and gettin a build like maroon1 suggests in this thread.
Upgrading a 5 year old system with $500

otherwise it doesnt seem like its worth the money.
