If you have a good 500 watt or better power supply, with 2 pcie power connectors it will work.

+1 will work.

Power supply is likely a problem. Your old card drew 19 watts peak. The new one -- 170W. That's a big difference. If you case is standard and not small form factor/slim then a new ATX power supply is relatively cheap = $45 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Make sure if you swap power supplies that you get a good quality one. A poor PSU will cause blue screens you'll never debug.
