    I am looking at upgrading my graphics card to a ZOTAC GeForce GTX 650 1GB GDDR5 which needs a minimum of a 400W PSU and currently mine is only a 250W. I have the Imedia s3810 from packard bell and was wondering which power supply would fit my motherboard without damaging it and still allow me to run this graphics card or one of simular specs.

    Any quality power supply with more than 400 watts will work, the key word is quality and it should be more than the minimum. Good brands are Corsair, Thermaltake, Antec, Enermax but all have entry level units that aren't meant for gaming system but basic or office use. Here's one very popular unit that would handle the load easily: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139020
