Take a look inside your computer and look at the power supply label.

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.

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
