You've got a PCI express slot, but I don't know how powerful your PSU is which will likely be the limiting factor on how powerful a video card you can get. The fact that it's MicroATX suggests a small case as well.

I'd say any second-line card should do okay, no point in a top-end card as your CPU and PSU won't use it to its max potential. Something like a Geforce 9600/9800 or Radeon 4670/4770/3850, around that range, should do you well.
