Default New and Need Help

So im looking to buy a gaming PC. But first i want to see if i can upgrade mine or if it worth upgrading. I tried to get a new power supply but there was a plug on my computer that the power supply did not have so i couldnt use it. if someone could tell me if there is any power supply i can get. And i do not know anything about computers so if you ask i probably wont know.

Here are my Specs: http://imgur.com/vwHx3nR,HewH7at#0

Post your motherboard model as well.

If this is a prebuilt machine, post the brand/model.
If it's an already custom built PC, then you can download CPU-Z, and post a screenshot of the Mainboard tab.

Do you have the mid tower or ultra slim form factor?

Not trying to be rude, but it's some common sense based on context clues. PCs are only as hard as you make them, because they are very simple. Mid tower, mid sized box, ultra slim, small box. Eh.

Anyways yes the PC is worth upgrading. Can't recommend a PSU until we know what you intend on doing with the machine. I assume gaming, but that is largely dependent on what GPU you want to buy.
