That graphics card requires a 400W power supply.  Your Gateway PC only has a 300W power supply, you will need to upgrade this too.  What are you wanting to upgrade your GPU for?  Gaming? 3D Modeling?

Yes as i said in my post i know im going to have to upgrade the psu. Im goin up to at least a 500w unit. And im upgrading it for gaming. I dont need it like a supercomputer as for graphics but im sick of lag. Besides the power goin to it, will this gpu work? Or is there another one thats maybe cheaper that will work just as good?

I would recommend http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130827 corsair psu 500w modular and there is non modular http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139027 and that but since you have a microATX is there anything under the PCIExpress slot and make sure that  its clear since its a dual slotted card.

 

I would order it from Newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130827 because if you want 75 in free games.

 

Make sure the current PSU is a standard ATX. Gateway likes to invent non standard psu for there systems It should be a standard psu. 

 

Before you order it other may comment

In terms of GPU, the ASUS HD7790-DC2OC-1GD5 Radeon HD 7790 1GB is a little faster than the GTX 650, the GIGABYTE GV-R785OC-1GD Radeon HD 7850 1GB is an even more substantial upgrade for about $10 or so more over the 7790.  If the power supply is standard ATX and your case can handle the card, you should have all you need for the upgrade.  Some of the larger graphics cards have a hard time fitting into some cases, but these are not the high-end flagship cards so they are typically shorter and can fit most mid-ATX cases.
