Needed advice Graphics Card Upgrade

Hello,
Yes I need a graphics card upgrade, I know this. I am just wanting to make sure before I go buy one that it will be compatible with my current system.

System specs:

Operating System : Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit(6.1, Build 7601)
Language : English
System Manufacturer : eMachines
System Model : EL1850G-42W
BIOS : Default System BIOS
Processor : Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU E3400 @ 2.60GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.6GHz
Memory : 2048MB RAM
Page file : 1685MB used, 2341MB available
DirectX Version : DirectX 11

I believe the Power supply is 250.

So I know it needs to be upgrade. What I don't know is to what graphics card that will work with my PC or if its even upgradeable. Yes I have looked at the list for supported cards but still don't know what works with my system.

As priceing goes cheap is always better but want to still have an enjoyable play experience.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Needs a new PC badly. :X

That said:

Radeon HD 7750

If your motherboard has a PCI-e slot and your power supply has enough juice you can run any gpu (although your cpu will be the bottleneck if you go with a gtx680). 7750 should do fine, but with capacitor aging your PSU might not have enough juice. Doing a quick calculation on extreme's psu calc shows a 250w power supply is on the ragged edge.

If it's a XFX version with PCI-E 6-pin plug version of 7750, it will not work on your PC.

Don't even try upgrading a prebuilt eMachine.

If you were to though, you need a new PSU.
