So you're wondering if your PSU can handle the 8800GTS?

yes... and if It can't handle it, then what would a good power supply be to purchase?
thanks

I meant to take pictures of the 24 pin power plug inside the computer. Also the label on the side of the PSU.

okay
im not sure if I got enough of the main power connector to help you... but I didnt want to unhook anything and i was hard to get a good angle, from either side of the case...
so just let me know if its not close enough and i will make adjustments
thanks again

You will need to upgrade the power supply, as that only has 19A on it's +12v rails, and the 8800GTS requires a minimum of 26A. I would suggest this power supply:
Newegg.com - XCLIO GOODPOWER 500W ATX 500W Power Supply 115/230 V UL, CUL, TUV, CB, VDE, FIMKO, DEMKO, NEMKO, SEMKO - Retail
or
Newegg.com - FSP Group (Fortron Source) AX400-PN ATX12V 400W Power Supply 120/220 - 240v NEMKO, TUV, CSA, IEC, UL, CE - Retail
....which actually has 1 more amp, than the XClio.
