Trying to upgrade graphics card in old HP machine

Hi all,

I have an old HP machine with a Geforce 9800 GT and I am interested in upgrading to a card such as a GTX 660, pictured here:

This is my HP system: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883107732


I think that there might be some issues in upgrading the graphics card that are related to an inadequate power supply, not enough space, and possibly PCI-E x16 issues. Can someone advise me on this? Is it possible to upgrade my graphics card in this old HP machine without also upgrading the tower, PSU, etc.?

Thank you

  1. I neglected to mention: The GTX 660 says it needs a 450 W PSU, and the HP machine has a 460W PSU, so it does technically meet the requirement. I'm aware that this is a long-shot, however...
