Are these Graphics Cards compatible?

I have a custom-made computer so I'm not sure if one of these graphics cards I want to buy are compatible:

All I see in the back of my computer is a VGA plug in, not an HDMI plug in, hope that helped. Also, can you tell me which one of those are better?

  1. yeah they are compatible, the mainboard has a pci-e slot so thats fine. (thats where you'd plug in the card)
    Both of the cards are pretty darn slow though, 4350 might be a little bit faster...

    also the power supply you got is low quality one, found this review with a little googling, doesnt sound too good... You should upgrade that as well when you get the chance to do so, get a branded psu like Antec, Corsair, etc

    Conclusions

    The iMicro PS-IM400WH is a typical ultra low-end power supply that must be avoided at all cost. Using this kind of bargain power supply will give you lots of headache.

    This “400 W” unit can only deliver around 280 W, with low efficiency, and these are not even the worse problems of it.

    The problem with ultra low-end power supplies, and the iMicro PS-IM400WH is no exception, is that their voltages get easily outside the proper working range, and the noise and ripple levels are always above the maximum allowed. These two problems will, in the best case scenario, make your computer to work unstable (i.e., presenting random problems), and, in the worst case scenario, overload and even burn components from your PC.

    In summary: stay away!
  2. Thanks!
  3. Is my Power Supply ATX or Micro ATX? I measured it and it was about 6" wide and 3.5" tall

    Can I also get a bigger power supply?

    Don't get any of those cards they are old and slow. What is your budget?
  5. At most $40 LOL
  6. Can you tell me a cheap PSU I can get. The current one I have is (WxDxH): 6.0" x 5.5" x 3.3"
  7. that size fits for a standard atx power supply. so a better one with low price would be for example this one:
    antec hcg-400 $45.99

    edit havent used amazon before, never bought anything, but darn that site is confusing...
