I think I'm posting this in the right area...

So here's the deal... I bought my HP Pavillion Slimline s3500f knowing that it would be hard to upgrade due to the computer's small size. However, my old computer was broken at the time and I was impatient. Buying a new computer is not an option due to limited money.

So now I'm left with trying to upgrade my graphics card. However, the PSU on this thing is only 160 watts I believe. So if I were to buy a real graphics card, I'd have to upgrade my PSU as well.

Here is my plan, although I am unsure it will work (which is why I'm here).

I want to buy this PSU suggested by a friend:

and buy this graphics card:
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814162016

Will it work?

Thank you in advance.

Two main problems:

1) Non standard size power supply. You'll never that one you've linked to in there.
2) Low profile card will probably fit but it needs a 6 pin power adaptor which runs off the power supply. If that's not there the card won't work.
