Is the PSU good enough?

DC 7800
Linux
I would like to know the watt usage of the computer but don't know how to find it and can't turn it on because I don't know if the PSU is good enough for what I did to the computer (Doubled the ram and added an old gt220 graphics card), also do they come with a bad silicon image graphics card in or must it have been put in since?

You should find the wattage requirement for this graphics card.

Given that it is from the Windows Vista / Windows 7 era, it may be "not too high".

The company that produced the graphics card said it was 65W but recommended a 300W PSU, I decided I will just leave it with the RAM upgrade I already gave it that I think works
