Default Graphics upgrade on MicroATX?

Hello everyone, I am currently looking to upgrade my graphics card, but I have some queries I would like to ask/clear up beforehand.

My system is the one at this link, exact model


It says it is MicroATX but yet the case is actually normal size? I know there is another model of the same PC with small form factor, but mine seems to be a normal size

Anyway, I am currently housing the following

AMD Athlon 64 x2 3800+
GeForce 6600
250W PSU

I wish to upgrade my graphics to run a game (Starcraft 2) on medium-high. I can currently run it on low no problem but I wish to enhance my playing experience by upgrading my graphics

I read that certain cards I have eyed up exceed my current wattage output, but I read certain articles that graphics card wattage is total baloney and nowhere near to the actual number? o_o

My only question is about what cards I could use and if I need more power, is it possible for me to upgrade my PSU? AFAIK I might need some special type of PSU, and I am kind of confused regarding this whole situation

Any feedback or input is greatly appreciated
