You're going to have to open your case and look for 6 and/or 8 pin pci-e connectors.. I can't find much on your psu and what i did find says bad news.

Are you in Au?

You would if you have no connectors... Double check this as it'd suck to spend un-needed money.

As youre from Australia, I'll let other Australians answer, as you guys are as expensive as Canada.

Though youre looking at a 550-560 or 6950 maybe.

Silverstone Strider Plus 600W ST60F-P
Gigabyte Radeon HD6950 1GB Overclocked

these are my decision. If you know any other cheaper psu go ahead and tell me.
