Recommendations on a graphics card

I have a Dell Dimension 4700 2.8ghz Pentium 4 1.75gb 305 watts. As of now I have no graphics card other then the integrated one on the board. I want to run Adobe CS3 (lightly, sketchup, and watch moives on my Dell Ultra sharp 24? monitor.
Basically I want the most dedicated memory without upping the 305watts power source. (256mb?) And get the best resolution out of my monitor? and cheap! I will eventually be retiring this computer for movies and music.

It has a PCI express

Thank you very much for your advice.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
