Need help with choosing a graphics card

Specs: Windows Vista
Hi, I'm looking to get a new graphics card, most I'd pay would be 200$ for it. It needs to be able to run new games on decent graphics settings, and to be not to loud, because that's annoying. I don't know too much about computers but I've posted images that should give all the comp specs you guys need to help me out. I checked the back of the comp and on a sticker it said "AC input 100-127v 6.0A 50/60hz, 200-240v 3.0A" I think this means that my computers power supply is 240v? Anyways below are the links to my comp specs, any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not able to view those links, why didn't you just post the specs? And the info you posted about the power supply is pretty much useless. We need to know the make/model/wattage & amperage specs, & the only way to get that info is to open the case & read it off the label.

If you have a power supply capable of handling the load of a gaming card, this article should be all you need: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews...

psu information not enough
we need to know the amperage on the 12V rail and the wattage of the psu.
and your current system specs.
if your computer was well enough and has enough power i would recommend a gtx 560ti

So i opened the comp up and it said this:
Combined Power on +12v AND +5V RAILS NOT EXCEED 268W MAX

I think thats the info you guys need

thats part of the info we need, under the 12V there is an amperage, but considering a 268Watts psu i would say its not enough to handle a gtx 460 or a gtx550,
if you dont want psu upgrade go for gt 240 GDDR5, if you want psu upgrade tell us and well tell you what psu you should get
