I would stick to 150W cards because there's a limit on what you want to pull from an older power supply and the case isn't cooled as well as it could be. The R9 270 (vanilla, not 270X) is pretty cheap - around $150 with MIR and uses only a single 6-pin power connector. The R7 265 is a little cheaper and a little slower.
Nvidia's 750Ti is also around $150 and whilst it's slower than either of the AMD cards above, it's very low power - the 6-pin power connector isn't really necessary, but it's there on some boards to allow overclocking. A GTX 660 isn't a bad deal if you can still find one for $150 but their price seems to have risen again as stocks dry up.
