If you open up your case, there should be a sticker on the side of the PSU stating it's total output voltages and watts. You need at least a 450W power supply with 30 amps on the 12 volt rail to run that card.

If the power supply doesn't already have a 6 pin PCIe power connector, the video will come with a molex to 6 pin power adapter.
