Is this your computer? > http://bizsupport1.a...4&printver=true
Accoring to the specs it only has a 220w PSU.

I just bought a R4350 graphics card for my PC, which is a HP pavilion s5730y. I'm not sure if the PCI express lane will work with the required X16 lane
The R4350 will work on your Mobo when installed in the PCIe slot. Your integrated graphics will be disabled. Here is a Little about PCI slots,
Here are the specs for the video card. > http://www.directron...4350md512h.html Card draws power through the slot so does not need a cable connection.
Recommended 300w PSU.
so would this "Cooler Master - Elite Power 350-Watt ATX/EPS CPU Power Supply"
It would, but is a very poor quality unit and one I would not buy. This is typical of reviews for it, Conclusion page and full article, > http://www.hardwares...y-Review/1184/9
Here is the kind of PSU you should buy, >

As the video card is passively cooled it will generate more heat. You should keep your eye on the tamps. If possible install a second case fan. If not possible look for an exhaust fan that will expel a greater volume of air from the case.
