Hi i have this computer: http://www.bestbuy.c...d=1134696772636
and i was just wondering what power supply upgrade would i need to buy, because im buying a new video card and it says it needs a minimum of a 350 watt power supply and mine is only 300 W. How do i know if the new power supply i buy will fit into my computer and if it is compatible with all my pci ports and my pci express port. Or if it is compatible with my hard drives and my dvd drive and dvd burner. If anyone can help me with this, I would be very happy. Thanks in advance.

You may be able to get away with the 300w supply you have now, although as its an HP machine, most likely not.

From the pictures it looks like its a standard sized unit so any other standard size PSU will fit. Look for at least 400w if not more.

I love this PS. A dual fan, 20 pin and 4pin connector, 9 molex 4pins on 3 sets of wires, 2 floppy connectors, 2 Sata connectors, and a 3 pin fan connector. Plus i find it will run a athlon 64 that a cheap 500W PS i have won't run without crashing. Might not be good for overclocking as i usually don't try that.
