looking for options on a better video card

Specs: Windows Vista, AMD Athlon X2 7750 / 4GB
I have an HP Pavilion slimline s5720f that I bought about 2 years ago now. Onboard graphics is Nvidia geforce 6150se... I play WoW (in fact I bought the HP because I had gotten into the game and my 5-year-old laptop couldn't handle it) and I have to keep the settings fairly low but it runs fairly well. I have wanted to get a better card for some time but it wasn't a priority. Anyway, I just got into RIFT and this video card really can't handle it- lots of lag even on the lowest settings. A friend who usually helps me with my computer upgrades said he could not find a card that would be an upgrade that would work in this pc (d/t either the power supply being low-watt? or space issues, though there were some he looked at and passed over because they didn't specify power requirements).

Is there really nothing else that I can put in here that would improve how this game runs? Am I really stuck unless I get a new computer? (something I would rather not do because whatever I could afford likely wouldn't be much better, but I'm perfectly willing to entertain suggestions of that nature as well)

Your friend is mostly correct. Because of the Slim style case, your upgrade options are very limited but there are a few possibilities. Here's one of them:
