PSU Upgrade Help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello, i'm very new to pc upgrading. I would like to upgrade the power supply from 220W to 350W/400W, so that I can add a GPU (to replace integrated graphics)

Computer: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=c02866387&prodSeriesId=5080757
GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202002
Here's the PSU I found: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817338063

So will it work or...?

Don't bother with upgrading inside that case

Rip the motherboard out of and drop it in a new case. I have a slim line from a cousin and i took it out and put it in a normal case, that way I could use a full sized video card and a normal PSU, otherwise, any card you buy will run just fine on the psu that is in the computer already.

The 7750 should run on the PSU included with the computer.

I know that it says minimum of 400 watts, but you will notice that the card doesn't have external power, meaning it can only pull 75 watts through the PCI-e slot.

Honestly though, I would go with what I mentioned above with a new case.

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811352009
PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151094
GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202029

Only about 30 dollars more expensive for the GPU, but that setup would let you grow in the future very easily.
