For my birthday, I got a gaming computer, it's ok, but reviews about it said that it needs a new graphic card and a power supply because the power supply it has can die pretty quickly and damage the internal parts, I don't know much about computers and I was think about buying this power supply and graphic card but I don't know if they are compatible or if they will fit in the tower, here are the links to the parts.

 

The computer tower

The graphic card 

The power supply
 
I know that there are way better choices, but I have to pay for the upgrades and customer reviews say that these are good for the price, I just need to know if they can fit in the tower and if they are compatible, and if I am missing parts, like cords to attach these things to the tower, or any missing part in general, please tell me, I don't want to spend all of this money and not having it be able to fit in the freakin tower!

Gday CrimsonKidMC.
Very wise to upgrade the PSU as it does have a very bad rep.

Some to look at, available on Amazon as well.   All modular, 80+ Gold, compare, > http://www.newegg.co...139-059:$$$$$$$  

 

The GPU is OK, but if you can up your budget a bit, consider a GTX 950, > http://www.newegg.co...127-935:$$$$$$$
