The best you can do is a GTX 1050 Ti. But I still wouldn't even risk using that PSU because it's made from a company that doesn't specialize in making power supplies thus it could have a higher chance at failing.

But if that's all you can afford than a 1050Ti is all it can handle.
If you want to go AMD, then an RX 460 or 560 are your other options.

1. That power supply is a badly designed and constructed power supply. It is also getting old. Two good reasons to replace it.

2. That power supply is rated to be a 400w power supply but the specs only list ~350w. You would need to be careful, even if that power supply were new, on how much you pull from it. Now that it is aged, I don't recommend anything.

3. You will need to ensure that you have the proper plug for your video card, on that power supply. If not, then you will need a new power supply.

4. The 2 graphics cards you listed show 55w and 60w respective usage. With a computer system running around 200-250w that doesn't mean much room for that power supply. Since that power supply is older, it isn't going to output enough. I would, again say that you need another power supply.

I would recommend any by Seasonic, EVGA, cooler master, corsiar, antex, NZXT. Any PSU from those brands should be safe to use on any dedicated GPU's.
Cooler Master has some truly horrific PSUs that are known system killers, EVGA also has some low end units(not as bad as Cooler Masters, but still not good) and with Antec it also varies by model.

I haven't heard any stories, but if you're saying you know of stories than 2 incidents is more than enough to know it's not a coincidence.
