The Shuttle SX58H7 is really powerful as far as compact PCs go. It has a 500W PSU, but no mention of any 6-pin, 6+2 pin, etc. PCI-e power connectors. I would say to be safe and go with any card that does not require extra power. What are you going to use it for? Gaming? HTPC?

The game is more taxing than the photography. I looked up the recommended requirements, and you're probably looking at a little under a $100. If you want ATI, an HD4850 will do. For Nvidia, GTS 250. Either one of those will give a you the cheapest card that fits with your PSU and can play your game smoothly. You can go faster, but it's probably better to go with a lower-powered card due to possible cooling issues in your case.
