check your power supply and feedback what the power rating is, i cant see the mini tower having the psu for that card

i have a vostro 220 slim tower, it has a 245 watt psu, the only half reasonable card it will run is an ati 4550 fanless, that card uses less watts than anything else
#2 here is link to the computer, I just brought the basic one. thanks for your help
I have upgraded to 4gb memory
300w Atx
or perhaps if not what would be my best bet, the only game i really play is wow
