anything with a pci express x16 should work. id go with a 550ti, should run fine on your computer. given you have enough room in the case & a large enough psu.

for your computer, any pci videocard from the last 12 years, and ane pci-e card will work.
the main issue is getting a good card that can work with your power supply
a 550ti will not work with a 250 watt power supply
you need a videocard that does not need an extra power connector
a radeon 6450 will work for minecraft but it is a pretty low end card and will not really handle modern demanding games
if you need to run modern games on mid settings then go for a radeon HD 6670 decent 66 watt TDP and offers good performance at the resolutions you want to use.
