Hello, This is my first question here, so please forgive me if I placed this in the wrong place or whatever. But anyway, what I want to do is upgrade my graphics card. But with my stock 540 PSU it's only about 350w. I have a few PSU's in mind that i'd like to upgrade to. A link to one of them:

http://www.amazon.com/PSAZ-650B14-Dynamo-Power-Supply-B...

Would that one be compatible with my computer? Then for my GPU I was thinking of upgrading to:

http://www.amazon.com/XFX-DisplayPort-PCI-Express-FX775...

BUT would this be compatible with my chipset?

If neither of these would be compatible, what would be a good, cheap psu that would handle a great gpu that is under about 150? I game, if you couldn't tell, but not hardcore WoW and stuff like that. Just basic stuff like Minecraft, CS: GO, LoL, CoD 4, etc. So it doesn't have to be *BOOM* All expensive and fancy and stuff. Just something that will give me decent fps and something that won't cause strain on my computer. Thank you so much in advance! :)

Power supply chosen is poor.

Should work , your computer appears to use standard ATX PSU.
