Hi, I'm new on this forum and this is my question:

What GPU can I put on my PC?

My PC has:
• Intel i3-3220 3.3GHz Processor
• Asus H61M-E Motherboard
• 4GB RAM
• Acteck (EDGE Systems) AF-B500 Slim GAFU-031 PSU

PD: I know that I have to buy a better PSU, if you can tell me which one is better that be economic but with a good performance and a good relation quality/price.

This is about the best that you will be able to do in the $150 range. You could shave off $10 by going with the EVGA BQ 500W 80+ Bronze. GPU wise you won't be able to get a higher performing unit while having to get a PSU with $150 budget.
 
at that price range, this is about as good as you can get:

Only issue is he wants a PSU of decent quality and the BR isn't a huge step over his current one. Better quality than current PSU for sure, is it any good nope. That PSU only has a 30C max operating temp.
