    What is your budget?

    What is the rating on your power supply. You may need to replace it as well as the GPU.

    After googling your PC model, it seems you're working with a 460W PSU. That should be enough juice for most low - mid range GPUs. With that said, until you provide us with a budget as @cliffordcooley requested, it'll be tough to recommend anything.
