I am trying to find a good GPU, PSU, and RAM for my hp p6510y (specs linked below) that will definitely be compatible and fit in my case. This will be the first time I am trying to upgrade my computer myself, so I just want to make sure I don't mess up! Please tell me if the ones I have selected are appropriate and/or suggest something yourself that you believe will fit and be compatible.

Desktop specs: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Docume...
Power Supply: 250W LiteOn Model PS-5251-08 ? (according to label)

I'd like to buy a card like one of these: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-car... for the purpose of playing games like Guild Wars 2 and Tera Online on decent settings. I'm not sure if it's worth it to get the more expensive cards to do so.

Here are the specs TERA recommends, though I don't know if the game really runs that well with only this: https://tera-support.enmasse.com/app/answers/detail/a_i....

---------------------------

Through my own research I was looking to buy these three parts. Can you please tell me if they should work and fit in my case, or if you recommend something else entirely? Thank you SO MUCH in advance!!

The 650TI needs a good 550W psu (which anything from Thermaltake is not)

the XFX 550W is an excellent psu. $46 after mir

Thanks for the advice. I only chose that because someone with my identical pc used it so I figured it would work. However they don't have that near me. I'm literally buying these parts tomorrow morning at my local microcenter:

Look for Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, XFX. PC Power and Cooling,

On their website they have all of those except for Seasonic and XFX.

I messed up. the 650TI needs 400W or more and one 6 pin. I got a little dyslectic and looked up the 560TI.

Do not buy CoolerMaster of TT psus. They are not worth it.

I changed the power supply. But since I have no idea what I'm doing, can someone then confirm that these three will work with my PC?

The 750W is more than you need but it is a really good supply. when I say you need a 400W supply or better that means your system is probably drawing around 250W max. The overhead is for capacitor wear and efficiency of the psu.

You want to take a few measurements as the 250W supply you are replacing is smaller.

The height and width of the supplies are standard but the length isn't. Measure how much length (back of computer to front) that you have before an obstacle for both the power supply and the video card.

The standard length for the 650TI is 5.7 inches. The Corsair TX750 is 6.3 inches.

Other than physically fitting in the case they are compatible with your system.

The GPU should fit, it is not excessively big. The RAM will work for sure, it is DDR3 @ 1333Mhz. Just measure twice and buy once for the GPU. You should be able to find the dimensions of any PSU online. Just make sure they are the same as your current one.
