and, add two external usb HDs, Macrium Reflect [free or fee], for restorable backups of your OS and data partitions .

Somebody earlier in another thread suggested a 450W power supply, however, I don't know which PSU to recommend.

The graphics card need a 300W @ 22A.  Your PSU has enough wattage, but does it have the needed amperage?


What is the make and model of this computer?
