Thank you for the additional information.

 

Yes, this means that you can replace the PSU.  You should measure the existing PSU and compare those measurements to the one that you choose to assure that it will fit into the space.  It should be a standard ATX PSU.

@LukasVed95, welcome to the forum.

 

Here is a link to the same card, but it has more information (See the Specifications tab), such as, the card requires a power supply unit (PSU) with at least 500W.  Also, it requires 1 x 8-pin power connector.  For this reason, I suggest that you buy a PSU with at least 700W to assure that there is enough power for peak needs.  Most newer PSU's have at least one 8-pin power connector --- normally 6+2).  The one in your link has a 6+2-pin power connector.  You won't damage the system by having 700W.  The computer will only use as much power as is required to run properly.

So does that mean that it is possible to replace my PSU? Do I need to worry about the size of my computer case or any PSU should fit in?
