My System Specs

Default

HP 350W POWER SUPPLY <br>5188-2859 (DPS-350AB-8A )

Looks like a standard ATX PSU to me. Though it does have far shorter cables.

Have you opened up the case yet? I'd make sure you can fit a GPU in there and that you have space for all the additional cables a "proper" PSU will have.

If it's a tight setup, then you might have to get something like a Silverstone Strider PSU w/ short modular cables (they sell it as an accessory).

Never had a problem upgrading the PSU in my old HP. Mind you it was fairly new.

Most ATX Psu's will have the option of a 20/24 pin power connector, or 4/8 pin Mobo connector. The only other thing you need to worry about is the mounting holes, but they're pretty standard these days.


Personally you might as well go for a quality psu, that you could put into your next rig. Corsair, PC Power and Cooling, or even OCZ seem to be good choices.

If your on a tight budget Sparkle Psu's seem to get good reviews and are pretty cheap.
