Hi! I have a Dell precision T1700 and I want to upgrade from my radeon r5 220 1gb to the GT 730 2gb and I was wondering if I get it could my power supply handle it and would it be good for gaming. Thank you!

You should be fine the T1700 supports up to 150W total for the Graphics card. The GT730 with 2GB of ram only uses 23W from the PCI-E Slot.

Depends on the Game, I'm not an avid gamer so I would need to rely on the Web for a definitive answer.
