I'm not much of a hardware type but You need a PCI Express X16 card. You should also look at upgrading the power supply as it's only 250W.

first you should upgrade your ram to a minimum of 4GB...preferably 8GB if the mobo will support it...you can go to crucial memory scanner here and they will tell what your system will support and the name of what your system requires...write that down and let us know what it is...
how much money do you want to spend for a video card
