HPs usually come with a 300watt PSU, what is the model number?

The 9400GT isn't much of a gaming card... it should still be better than the on-board. Buts it doesn't compare to $75~100 video cards... which usually require a 400~450watt QUALITY power supply ($50~80).

Check on nvidia for its power requirements, but by memory... that card shouldn't be an issue.
