Default Need Advice

So I have a lenovo ideacentre with an Nvidia GT 420 card and a 280w power supply.

Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

I want to buy this bundle but I'm not sure how to tell if my motherboard is ATX or SATA or what.

If anyone could help me out I'd be very grateful.
And if I can't use this bundle maybe suggest a different power supply and card.

K410 I take it.
That card is serious overkill for anything short of movie editing or 3D craphics rendering. You don't really need that kind of horsepower to game.
As for what you have the ad seems to be typical Lenovo, mostly BS. You say it has a GT 420 while the ad says GT 525.
Well if you go that card that's up to you but for the low end le garbage' they build I wouldn't waste the money on it. And BTW 600w ain't gonna cut it either. With that gas guzzling hog better get 850.
