Probably not. Your PSU is most likely a 250w labeled as a 300w that barely delivers it's rated amperage on it's rails.
I suggest replacing it.

FromSoft: So you want framerate issues on PC?! OK!

I'm sorry I get hand me downs because I can't afford anything right now.

is your dell vostro 200 a slim pc or normal mini tower? those slim pc's can only use "low profile" video cards so upgrading would be difficult.
i still haven't found what i'm looking for...

I believe it is normal, how would I check? Rough measurements are 17 cm x 40 cm x 35 cm

A 9500GT would probably be fine, but you might want to see if you can get a handmedown PSU.

Thanks, though I'm not sure if a new psu would be compatible with this computer since Dell doesn't like things like that far as I know...
