Pc/Graphics card compatibility

Okay, I've needed an upgrade for a while and i just have to ask if these two are compatible or if they need any cords/wires.

My current pc: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883229285

New graphics card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130827

Are these compatible? Im terrible at this kind of thing.
And an added question, do you think i need a new PSU with more wattage to run this graphics card?

    yeah u have a turbolink noname powersupply id def wouldnt install that new graphic card. with that junk of a pos.

    heres a cheap one u can pick up. that be a nice replacement:

    http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182200

    60$ and will def do the trick in terms of performance and quality, its 650watt non modular but at this price cant ask for modular ;)

    also if ur uncomfortable installing a ps and a new graphicard. bring it to a local shop to get it installed. prob better off instead of doing something ur not comfortable or knowledged in.

    If this is accurate to your system (you should check the label on your PSU to see if it matches)

    Key point-
    Quote:
    This power supply doesn't have any PCIe 6-pin power connectors for video card expansion


    That leaves you with 3 options-

    New PSU - probably a good idea if you can afford it, that PSU looks pretty awful.

    Change graphics card selection to a HD7750 (best graphics card that doesn't use an additional connector)

    Use a 4pin molex adaptor like this - http://virtuapin.net/images/adapter-2x-molex-6pin.jpg Most graphics cards come with them. Not ideal, but it should do the job.
