Hello, I was wondering is this video card is compatible with my computer. My computer is pretty old and I'm not sure if it's compatible. My computer only has 300 wattage.

I would say be careful. PCI-Express 2.1 cards had some weird compatibility issues with 1.0 slots at the time of socket 775. Also if you wouldn't mind could to take your side panel off and take a look at your power supply. I would like to know what you have.

Well the issue he has here is that he has a 300w PSU which will hold him back quite a bit unless he gets something very very minimal like a 610.
