Yes any power supplies will work your computer. Well, except for the wattages. I'm running a 7600GT with a 430W PSU and it's holding it pretty fine. You can either go get a Xclio Greatpower 550W PSU. Those are cheap and very good PSU's.

It's a smaller version of a regular PSU.

Thermaltake PSU
^That's for an ATX.
