Hey so I decided to add some more beef to my pc.

I'm upgrading from something crap to a XFX 270X.\

I just have one problem,

I don't know if the PSU will be compatible with my new specs.

Here are my specs: http://support.hp.co...ument/c04117744

Here is the psu I want: http://www.newegg.ca...2276.1436417312

 

Here is the link to the GPU:

Hopefully someone can reply,

Thanks

-Regards,

Kronomic
