It looks like it should fit fine. However, looks like you may also have a matx psu.

matx is a smaller form factor. However, they are less powerful and seem to be harder to find. IIRC fortron makes a decent matx psu.

Knowing Sony... it *might* even be a non-standard format. The PSU seems to be in the ~350W range (the specs state that the power requirement for the PC is 365 W or so). If it is good quality, it should be able to handle the new card. As someone else in this threat said, quality > quantity.

My only concern it that this PSU might not have a 6-pin PCI-E connector. There is an adapter, but you will need two free molex (4-pin) connectors that are free.

This is the adapter:
ePOWER EP-CABLE-VGA6 Power Conversion Cable for PCI express VGA Cards - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16812154001

So the options are:
- try with current PSU, possible you'll need an adapter for PCI-E power connector.
- Have someone check out what the actual size of the PSU is (maybe mATX, or a non-standard Sony?) and see if you can find a new one.

Ok, I saw the video review, it's deffinately not matx. It's either full atx or proprietary. If you can post some shots of the rear of the computer that would be great.

Ugh.. not right. More like 250W - 300W range, depending on efficiency. The power requirement of the PC states 365W, at 110V. Normally, a PSU has an efficiency between 70% and 85%, resulting on a lower wattage.
