What is the budget? Even high-end cards like the GTX 680 consume a maximum of 195W. You'd be able to get by most cards with the exception of flagship dual-GPU cards.

The AMD HD 7750 and 7770 will operate on PCI-e power in most card designs, and will give acceptable gaming performance for casual gamers.
