It should fit but your 300watt PSU would be the limiting factor and need an upgrade.

Don't get a off brand power supply. Go with a known brand I would get a 500w power supply. Your motherboard is also not too good and putting that card on it will push its limits. I have a 5570 on my computer similar to that and I am having problems. The fit of that card would be very tight restricting airflow to the point that the heat will give you problems.

Thermaltake TR2 500watt PSU is not good see the little voltage switch, bad sign! The Mod extreme is a good buy!

Most power supplies have the voltage switch it just means it can work with 120v power in the US or 220v in europe. Makes no difference in how good or bad it is.

But the switch doesn't affect the quality of a power supply just means you don't want to switch it to the wrong setting when you first use it.
