I want to upgrade my video and power supply for this PC.

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I bought a power supply but the plugs in were wrong. I also bought a nVidia video card but my 300 watt ps did not have enough plug ins to power the video card. I really hate to have to buy a brand new desktop. Any suggestions ???

@armydude,

As a learning curve,  I need to pick on you. so that others can learn.  Your Army, so you can shoulder it.

When asking for advice or an answer to an inquiry, it is best to NOT leave out important data.

1) Your computer uses an ATX 24 pin Main ans 4 pin auxiliary power plugs.

2) What NVidia card did you purchase?  You mentioned it needed power.

      It already had a GTX 1050 card (non PCIe power plug required).

3) I do not know any stock 300W PSU that has PCIe 6+2 power plug.

If you answer #2, I can tell you what PSU power range you need to purchase.

Alas, it is too late to ask, but I will.  What is the need?  A game ?   Name it, please.

The original machine " had "  the GTX 1050 "2 GB" video card.  I had bought a 2000 series video card and found out my Power Supply did not have the 6/2 plug you talked about in it for the 2000 series card. I returned it [the card], to the supplier and got a GTX 1050 Ti "4 GB"  card, which worked. But now I need to upgrade again and I'm finding out that the original 300 Watt Power Supply I have now won't power the bigger video card. I'm talking the RTX 2040 or 50 or 60. I also needed to know if this original Mother Board will handle that big of a video card.

By the way, I was Army, combat heavy engineers, and we can handle it.   Well most of the time.

Give me some good news dude.
