  1. What brand and model of power supply that makes a huge difference.
  2. not too sure dude. how would i check?
  3. Take a look inside your computer and look at the power supply label.
  4. it say it is a Aero cool SX-400 model nu. SL-400e
  5. Yeah I would risk using a good GPU with that power supply. Your next upgrade should be a decent power supply. Only buy corsair, seasonic or xfx. Using a bad power supply like that runs the risk of frying your hardware. Realistically that PSU is 320-350watt not 400.
  6. ah ok cool :) so whats the best what i should go for? and then what graphics card could i get??

    I'd say any 550 seasonic xfx or corsair PSU you can get cheapest in your area. As for GPU I would say get a r9 270 anything higher is a waste being as your processor is very lacking. Apus are more meant for mobility not desktop gaming
