Vostro 220s help

Well i recently bought a GeForce 210 1024 mb graphics card, and the power requirements for the card is 300 watts. I am currently running at 250 watts so would I be able to run the card off of the lower power supply? If not what kind of power source do i need to look for since this is the slim tower.
Thanks for any help its much appreciated.

    You possibly wont be able to. You will run the card, but instability is an issue. Maybe upgrading the PSU is great.

    The maximum size for the PSU is 100mm wide. That may be tricky to do, considering not may PSU's are that small. I will see to it that there are members here that know of this. I will get a pro over here.

    Well, that explains it. I thought the GPU was over-rated on power. Never really would of come to me.
