  1. Where do you live or where will you be buying it from?
  2. Your primary problem is "HP Pavilion Slimline"
    Your secondary problem is "Power Supply 220W"

    Yes, at the very least you need new of both.
    But those things were not really made to be 'upgraded'.

    Should have done your research first, that's a slim PC, and you bought a full-slot card, you need either a low profile card (7750) or a new case and probably PSU, you could do the case/psu for $100 or less, and the card would be less as well, just depends which way you want to go, here's some possibilities:

    Case+PSU:

    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

    Case: Raidmax ATX-298WW ATX Mid Tower Case ($24.99 @ Newegg)
    Power Supply: XFX 550W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($49.99 @ NCIX US)
    Total: $74.98
    (Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

    Or a low profile 7750 for $100 after rebate:

    Low profile 7750's are overpriced, i'd say the case/psu upgrade is a much better route to take.

    So if I got a new case for my computer for around 50 or so dollars and a new power supply for around 50 would everything work out?

    If you get the right ones, yes.
    Do not buy a crappy PSU, though. Get a Seasonic, XTX, Antec...
    A cheap PSU is like a cut rate pacemaker. It will kill you sooner rather than later.
  8. It should work, i've seen many OEM pc's transplanted this way, it can be hard with Dells or older PC's that have proprietary bits...HP doesn't do that as much though.
