Thanks for the info. 

Found the correct spec sheet, > http://www.manualsdi...0w.html?page=12  But am unable to tell how many PCI-E connectors it has.   I think your present GPU has 1x6 pin, can you look please and see if there are 2x6 pin connectors.

Thanks for the update.

Within your budget the R9 270X is the highest you can go, this is also the best perforating as well.   I have some reservations about your PSU, it does, just, meet the required power specs, but it is a poor quality card and suggest you upgrade to a better quality one as soon as possible.

 

3 cards to consider, the Gigabyte would be my first choice > http://www.newegg.co...125-476:$$$$$$$
