Default Power Supply HELP!!

I currently only have a 200w power supply and I'm trying to install a Radeon 9800, I know this needs at least 300w min. to run. Can anyone tell me if my Dimension 4300 is capable of a larger Power Supply. Any help would be great!!

Aint that just to switch it off or on? Or the other switch to switch between voltages? :P opps.....

Yeah, they should be replaceable rather easily. Some cases are built well so that you only have to unscrew and slide it out at the top. Though some odler cases are worse, and sometimes means taking out the motherboard (at least with my old one...ouch)

I have a 500w powersupply and do fine with that card and loads of components
