A GeForce GTX 730 NEEDS 20 amps on the 12v rail and a 300 watt power supply.

I would save your money that setup isn't worth upgrading.

You can replace the PSU in any desktop PC. your current one is on the borderline of "just enough" to power a GT 730, the manufacturer recommends a 300w minimum. In any case, factory-fitted PSUs are typically low-cost, low-end units and should be replaced with something more robust and durable because when a PSU fails it can effectively "kill" a shiny new graphics card as well as other components.

As long as it will fit it should be able to power it.

PSU upgrades with those types of power supplies are too limited.

i hope it can , and what does 20 amps on the 12v rail mean cuz i dunno if the psu have this , i know little about psu anyway so even if i change case it will be hard to upgrade the psu?
