250W isn't going to get you very far. I assume you want the card for gaming? You're either going to have to get a low end card with very low power requirements or you're going to have to upgrade the power supply so that you'll be able to run a decent gaming card.

The processor has nothing to do with it but after re-reading your original question, I see you wrote "pci or pci-e". Do you not know which slot type your system has available? Does that mean it could possibly be AGP?

If you know the make/model of the motherboard, post it. Or if you have an OEM system (Dell, Gateway, HP, etc), post the model & model number.

nVidia GeForce GT 240:

or

ATI Radeon HD 5670:

--Both are easy on the power supply. They do not require auxiliary power.
--The 5670 is slightly faster and DX11 ready.
--The GT 240 uses slightly less power. Also much cheaper.
--Go any higher than the GT 240/HD5670 and your "celeron D 2.6ghz" will really put a cap on things. You might wanna upgrade the CPU too; P4-based Celerons were terrible processors, especially for games.

If keep that 2.6GHz Celeron D, there's no point in getting a video card faster than the GT 240 or HD 5670.

To answer your question, a 450w PSU by Antec, Corsair, or Enermax will run up to a GeForce GTX 460 or Radeon HD 5850.

Couldn't find a thing about your motherboard, but I'm assuming it's an LGA 775 board.

Core 2 Duos are LGA 775 (pinless) CPUs, but before you upgrade, you need to know what chipset your motherboard uses. Use CPU-Z: http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-...
