    What is the exact make and model of the PC you are looking at putting the new GPU in? Assuming you are upgrading a pre-built machine?

    What is the exact make and model of the PSU in the machine, this will potentially be a significant limitation on what you can install. If you are upgrading from integrated graphics then your current PSU is quite likely not going to up to the job of any new GPU unfortunately.

    From what I can find online, that is a very low end pw supply and as such is not recommended for use with a gaming type card. Good ie recommended brands are as follows; corsair [not builder or cx models only HT, TX, or AX] seasonic, pcpower&cooling, or FSP. In short IF you want a better gaming card, you need a better quality pw supply as well. Add the cost of a quality pw supply to your budget.
