I currently have an hp pavilion s5-1014 and i wanted to get a new psu and a low profile graphics card for my games because my integrated one is not doing the job at all and i know it still wont be powerful but i just need an upgrade so i was going to get these two things and can fit in my comp and if it is compatable with each other?

The new GPU i will be getting is this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
I would also like to know how better this will perform then the x4500 integrated graphics.
The new PSU is: http://www.ecrater.com/p/11196609/hp-pavilion-slimline-...
Please someone tell about this and tell me if it will fitin the case and if it is worth it or anything i would love to know and i hardly know anything about psu and also if i dont need to get a new psu that would be great to but i guess that would be the one if i had to get one but just tell me if its good and if it will fit.

If you need a low profile graphics card, it also usually needs a low profile bracket on the end.
Visually, it looks to me that the card you linked to has a normal sized bracket which will be too tall.
In the package, I see no indication of an included low profile bracket.

Here is a slightly stronger card with the appropriate bracket for example:

The psu looks to be the appropriate power, but I am not at all certain about it's quality. But in a TFX size, and 400w, I don't see anything better.

ok so do you think that pcu will fit and can i attach a psu outside of my sytem somehow if it doesnt fit? because im really not looking for a new tower and if its a stronger psu do you think it would have the right pins and connecters for the motherboard?

Take the time to find out what the format of the psu in your case really is. Small cases will often have smaller than standard sized psu's. Measure the dimensions of your current unit. The psu you linked to is probably the correct size. It is a TFX standard which is much smaller than a ATX. While you are at it, see what it says on the data plate. Look for total wattage, and, more importantly, the maximum amperage on +12v. I really doubt that a standard ATX size will fit.

If you have an available 5 1/2 drive bay available, you can buy a 450w auxiliary psu that will power many graphics cards

Most any psu made today will have the appropriate connectors that you will need.

It is entirely possible to build a pc without a case, leaving all of the parts out and just laying on a table or cardboard box. That is what I do to try out all of the parts on a new build before I put them in a case. To power on, you will need a way to start the pc if you do not have a pwr switch on your motherboard. A simple external switch is cheap. But if you have cats or kisd roaming in the room, it is not such a hot idea.

The psu you linked to is of unknown origin. It will probably do the job, but if you will eventually get a normal sized tower, it will not be very useful.

I suggest you consider getting a case up front. Good cases are not expensive.
You can buy an Antec 200 for $45.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Quality psu's come from Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, XFX, and pc p&c to name a few.
You can get a Corsair 430W unit for $24 after rebate:

Also, the graphics card you linked to is not a real gaming card. It is certainly better than integrated graphics though.
Read this article:

Gaming cards worth getting start at $75 or so. If you do not limit yourself to low profile cards, you should be able to get more for your budget.
