Default Old motherboard with new gpu?

Hi all,

I have a question and I'm hoping for some advice.

After looking around for top end gpu's the cpu's required and motherboard to support it all (and after adding all the other bells and whistles) ends up over what I'm willing to shell out.

Anyway here be my riddle.

I have an Asus P5PL2 motherboard. DDR2. and has 1 PCI Express x16 slot. What would be the best nVidia card I could put in it? (and work obviously). Would it support a GTX260? If so, I'd need to get a new power supply right? (at 350W now, don't laugh too much)

Have 2GB ddr2 (old tech but it's working) and a duo core P4 (again old tech, but runs fast enough).

Current gpu is 7300GS and playing at 1fp10s is not the most rewarding experience, haha.

Thanks in advance for any and all input.
