in theory it should have enough power. see if you have 2 pare 4pin molex connectors available. and yes, this is where most companies will cut corners, but where don't they?

The system is powered by a 500 Watt Turbolink branded switching power supply with model number ATX-TL500W-BK. This is a brand that we haven't heard of before. It has two +12V rails with +12v1 being rated at 16 Amps and +12v2 being rated at 18 Amps. This power supply doesn't have any PCIe 6-pin power connectors for video card expansion, which is a bit of a bummer as we always like PCs to have an upgrade path. We took a look around the system and found all the power connectors were used except for one 4-pin molex connector and a SATA power connector.

if you don't open the case and see what you have we're not going to get anywhere.

like I said, that would be the minimum. not a bad supply. I could go better but don't know the budget.......... or if that's it.
