Well I have no way of knowing what connectors the psu has, but I would not trust a generic 280W to run any type of dedicated gpu.

What is the purpose of that card? Don't expect to game with it. It's only use is to power a monitor.

Well a 610 would only draw power from the motherboard. I believe a 610 needs a minimum of 300w. So no your PC isnt compatible with that card. Even the low end cards need at least 300w, so I would look into getting a new PSU before getting the video card.

The external power it uses would be from the power supply unit, so yea, you would have to buy a new power supply unit nevertheless.
