  1. It should be... it has a pci-e 16, but the psu in prebuilds tends to be of terrible quality.
    So you might need a new psu.
  2. your desktop has the motherboard support most certainly, but your power supply is 600W, that is enough but the quality is poor.

    Look into getting this;
    SeaSonic S12G S12G-650 650W 80+ GOLD Certification. This'll fit nicely and has the wattage and defiant quality to suit your build;

  3. Umm, can't i go on with the psu that has come with it, im a little scared changing the power supply. I mean it should be enough if it can run a gtx 770, why not r9 290?

    I would be more scared leaving that PSU in your system, leaving it could mean it blows after a short period of time and in gaming, constant blue screen due to crashing.

    GTX 770 is 230W TDP

    R9 290 is 300W TDP.

    It is not only the wattage but the quality, not all 600W PSU's deliver 600W, it is also about the amps on the 12V rail.
