Re: Need Help Upgrading Son's Computer

said by KCrimson:

I think he's going to try one of those graphics cards. How close to the danger zone are we talking - does he really need to first purchase that power meter?

I think you're good. The PC has a 250w PSU, and you are likely drawing well under 100w, so adding a GPU with a max TDP of 50-60w is fine.

But as Fizzy suggested, if you want to verify it, open up the computer and post a picture of the label on the PSU.
