You definately need a new PSU. Post the rest of your specs so we can see what is worth it for your hardware.

PCIe or AGP?
Amound of memory?
CPU?
Amount of drives?

Specs listed here.

I would still recommend getting a better PSU first.

PCIe- 2.0
Amount- 4gb?
CPU- Intel Core 2 Duo
Amount of drives- 2?

It is most likely Micro-ATX. That wouldn't give you much of a selection. Newegg link. Probably the 300 or 400watt one will be good. You should wait for a second opinion for somebody else.

I'm sure that the Gateway SX2800-01 is gonna use a SFX form factor PSU.

These PSU's.

EDIT: They're too big.

These PSU's will fit.

SAPPHIRE 100253HDMI Radeon HD 4650. Graphics card. Its powered via the PCIE slot.

Those psu's won't match the back of the computer. Where can find ones that match that are more than 220w?
