A basic GTX750ti is a big jump over your integrated graphics.
It is a very low power card that does not usually need a 6 pin aux power lead.
Some highly overclocked versions do need aux power, so check that.
If your 400w psu has a 6 pin power lead, you could even handle one of those.
Without the need for a 6 pin power lead, the GTX750 is powered entirely by the pcie slot that can deliver up to 75w.

I have little doubt that your 400w psu will do the job.

And... if your os is 64 bit capable, you might look into adding a second ram stick.
If nothing else, even in 32 bit, you will operate in a faster dual channel mode.


 


Your CPU is going to give you a bottleneck issue with anything above a regular GTX 750, I'm not sure that won't be bottlenecked to be honest. I don't know what 50 euros would buy as far as a power supply goes. Just remember you get what you pay for you can't buy a quality 650w power supply for $20, or even $50. If I was you I think about saving up and getting a new Motherboard, CPU, RAM.(8GB Kit) Then think about a new quality power supply. VGA price performance has been getting better and better by the time your ready you'll should be able to get great value for your euro.
