I am not sure what you want to know - Go to following Web Site & Download the FREE Home Edition of Everest - Install & run

It will give you all info on your PC. .

Expand [Computer] Then Click [Sensors} - This will give you Votages- If that is what you were asking?

One-COOL told you were that info can be found - usually label is accessable.- You will also know if your motherboard supports whatever card you are getting. 300 Watt Supply is not excessivly large in today's PC.

Need to read Computer specs + motherboard specs. Downloading Everest & running it - would be a great tool in learning your PC - Its a free educational tool!

This program will give you the information about motherboard and give you web sites to go for product info.

You will need to know what AGP support your motherboard has

when you buying new power supply, look for power supply with active pfc which stand for true power.
