Below is the specs for the desktop:

  1. I don't thing that your power supply would be able to power up the 260. You should upgrade your psu if you would like to upgrade your gpu

  2. you should pull the side and measure how big a card you can put in and whether or not you can put a single slot card or is there enough room for a double slot wide card.

    i wouldn't waste my time on a 260. you can get something that's faster and uses less power and runs cooler.
  3. get a nice little 440 . . .

    most anything else will require a PSU upgrade.
  4. Thanks for the reply. Do you know any graphics cards that have similar specs to GeForce GTX 260 or GeForce 7800 and can run along with the 250W power supply? I am trying to limit the cost of upgrading my computer.....
