Default XT963 upgrading

Here question, I'm trying to upgrade to a better graphics processor. Radeon 9250 is a pci which will fit in the machine. But says needs 230-250 watts power supply. When i checked power supply i have.. says 150 watts. So I ordered a 240 watt power supply...says it compatable. I bought the 240 watt power supply and the Radeon 9250 card...but before i hook up, I need to know if I got right stuff.



my Machine is XT963 p5274a.

intel (R) celeron TM 1200 Mhz 1.2 GHZ 512 meg ram.

The Power supply in it right now says HP p/n 5185 - 2917
hpr1603a3030136
f3-0109008102


Here is what I ordered:
New Power Supply fo HP Pavilion XT936/XT963/9800 CTO PS



It still listed on ebay..

Next is the Graphics card I have bought which I'm wanting to upgrade my XT963 with.

[TD]Serial ATA's primary benefits over Parallel ATA include:
  • Smaller, easier-to-route cables: The Serial ATA architecture replaces the wide Parallel ATA ribbon cable with a thin, flexible cable that can be up to 1 meter in length. The serial cable is smaller and easier to route inside a PC's chassis and eliminates the need for the large and cumbersome 40-pin connectors required by Parallel ATA. The small-diameter cable also helps improve air flow inside the PC system chassis and will facilitate future designs of smaller PC systems.
  • Improved data robustness: Serial ATA offers more thorough error checking and error correcting capabilities than are currently available with Parallel ATA.
