Should work just fine.  The minimum requirements state that this video card works with a 300w PSU, so you should be good.  However, it's always best to have at least an extra 100-200w not being used up by the graphics card to make sure the other components in your computer are getting sufficient power.

The manufacturer does suggest a 300W or higher rated PSU.  Unfortunately not all PSUs rated at a specific wattage are equal.  More importantly most OEM PSUs are not 80 plus certified.  Some of these will even be rated at 300W peak power, this means that the PSU will not be able to continuously produce the rated wattage.

 

It may well be worth opening the case and finding the make and model of this PSU and post it here so we can determine exactly what you have.  Depending on how the PSU is installed you may or may not need to partially remove it in order to read the label.

 

Another consideration is the fact that this computer was originally released in Jan. of 2011, so this computer could be five years old.  The electrolytic capacitors in the PSU breakdown over time, this means that the PSU will lose power over time.

It appears that Windows 7 was installed on this computer in November of 2014.  Was this the original installation?
