Current graphics card- ATI Radeon HD 4200 integrated graphics card.
According to the research I've done, with my desktop's current processor I can't expect to upgrade to anything too ambitious. However, I'm not looking to run current gen video games, but just something strong enough to run Runescape on a decent graphics level. Is there anything I can upgrade my current card to that can do the job?

The requirements would recommend any GTX 550TI or 660 card. Then a new PSU.
Your system is a Legacy BIOS, so you have to stay with cards that are not UEFI vBIOS.
Comparing the 550ti and 660. The Corsair CX 600 PSU is an excellent choice.
PS<> that circa 2011 computer is way out of warranty. (only had a 1 year warranty).
