I have a Gateway Media Center 2004 PC. I have had it for a while, and everything inside is still stock. I have not messed with anything inside it.
I am more of the gaming type, and the 128mb integrated graphics arent workin for me right now.
My friend suggested i get http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814241066
It looks fairly nice, good card for a good price, but I'm worried that my power supply wouldn't handle it well. I tried to find out what type of power supply I have, but looking inside the computer only really let me know that its max wattage is 300, and I'm not sure if it will cut it.
My friend has also suggested that I get http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16817371005
Which also looks nice, but I'm not too sure if it will fit, because it is a Gateway computer, and they may make it not upgradable. I looked inside my PC and I didn't see any easy way to take out my power supply.
Basically what my question is, will my current power supply(with 300W max) do the job with that new video card, and if not, would the power supply that I linked be able to fit inside of my PC?
