Default Need some help

I just want to know something. I am going to buy a new comp soon and I just need some knowledge about my graphics card/PSU combination. I want to know if this PSU(which is 300 watts) can put out enough to handle this graphics card. Here's the links:

Computer and PSU- http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...ku=G153-GT4010

Graphics Card- http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...892526&CatId=0

Thanks.

not sure about it. But it's always smart to invest in a good psu, I'd recommend that you get another psu if you can spend the extra money.

To be honest I can't really spend any extra money, considering that on top of this I've gotta buy a wireless router and adapter. I am very much on a budget and I need this comp very soon (planning on buying it in the next 2 weeks). So ya...

well I guess you could always try it with the 300w psu, but it's going to be extremely tight. It would be best to get a better psu.
Couldn't find any psu recommendation from newegg, I'll try google.

edit:
"350-Watt power supply or greater recommended"
from http://ati.amd.com/products/RadeonX1600/Products.html

Ok I think I've come to a resting on what I want. I'm going to get both of computer and the graphics card. I'm not going to get a new PSU, but I'm switching the graphics card so that it should work with my 300 watt PSU. My parents were a little freaked about the price, so I had to take out some stuff. And I'm going to get a USB wireless adapter and a wireless router. Here are the links for the stuff that you don't know the link for:

New graphics card- http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...ab=11&NoMapp=0

Adapter- http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...&sku=D700-5142

Router- http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...&sku=D700-5178


EDIT: I also want to know if the 7300GS will play graphically intense games like Battlefield 2, Half-life 2, FEAR etc.
