Check your power supply for a PCI-E cable. It's a low profile card, so I assume it doesnt use much power. It being a 250w is a bit concerning actually, but it may be able to.

If the power supply isnt enough do you recommend any power supply that is really cheap that would deff. be-able to run it? If so can I see a link.

i was looking in some of the reviews of the Graphics card and someone with an Inspiron 530s said that it ran pefectly on his and i think they have 250w power supply so do you think that i should be good?

If your PSU can handle the card and if your mobo supports PCI-E it's a done deal bro.
