      Hi, Your cpu is a low end one and your 300 watt power supply will probably not be able to run much.
      What desktop is it? i would need to know the size of the case.

      This is probably the smallest card you will get and should run with 300 watt.. however if your power supply is not a quality one then you may run into problems.
      Your motherboard is older so cannot make use of the newer connection types.. will default to the slower connection. if your case has very little in the way of ventilation then you could also run into heating issues.

      Your case should be able to handle the graphics card, However not too sure if the power supply you have has the appropriate connectors. also you are running the MINIMUM amount of power so i would very much look into another power supply.

    Hey seen a few other people asking for tech advice, so thought I'd give it a shot!
    I've been saving for a gaming desktop and finally wanting to get back into the sims since the recent updates!
    My budget for the desktop alone is 1,200 pounds
    Someone sent me this link on another site *i can't send it because I haven't been a member on here for long enough, it was from plum pc. Do you have any suggestions if you wouldn't mind helping out. Also maybe I could DM you the link ?
    Thanks :)
