Very limited selection of cards for my rig. Suggestions?

I,ve got an Alienware X51 R2 machine that is a small form factor rig that runs on a 330 watt power brick.

Because of that, I'm finding it hard to find a replacement for the Radeon R9 270 card in mine that went bad.

The only ones that are certified for my rig are:

Radeon R9 270

Radeon R9 270x 

and R9 370x

I think that they have to draw less than 150 watt for this machine.

It has 2 6-pin connectors on the one that is in it. Will I need a card with dual connectors or will a single one work.

Can anyone suggest a card that will work?
