There's no description of the power supply unit that comes in that desktop.

The model of my power supply is SL-8360BTX
I'm not a hardware expert nor a gamer, but it's pretty obvious that power supply will not handle a graphics card upgrade and the demands of gaming.

That is only a 350 Watt PSU. Ipower computers usually give you a good CPU and everything else is just enough to run the computer. I'd recommend at least a 650 Watt PSU,. You'll probably want to buy a better quality RAM at some time. What GPU to buy depends a lot on what PCI slots you have.
