It probably would, but I would get a better one. If the psu does short out, it could take stuff with it. If I were you I would get a better psu, then a video card. A good psu can be had for $ 50ish

you can build a custom PC for less money.

But for gaming, you need a much better video card. At least 256MB, 512MB would be nice.

The one he linked has 256mb. You must have mistaken the 128 bit bart for it.
