pc is hp media center m8300f. everything besides the graphics card is factory and the tv card and card readers have been disconnected.

Hi, that graphics card will work as PCI-E is backwards compatible and the card itself barely draws any power as it is a low end car, so the stock power supply should be sufficient.
