Default Power Supply.

I'm looking into buying a new video card. (Just made my purchase for my Ram; On to the next upgrade) However, the card i wanted states i need a 450w power supply. Currently have a 305w power supply..


My question is. How hard is to to swap these things out.. How much do i have to worry about compatibilitie? How many watt power supply would you suggest?
Right now I'm looking at a 520w power supply. Should that be all around just fine? (Future upgrades; GPU and Flat Screen monitor) With just those 2 things in mind, is 520w sufficient(sp?) I may upgrade more later on. But those are the things i have in mind now.

It's easy swap. All you need is to unplug the power cords and replug them with the new PSU.
