Arrow PLZ Help. Not complicated. Really appreciate it. Plz

I am have been having difficulties Lately trying to decide which graphics card I should put in my Dell 530s to be able to run Aion. The problem is, the computer requires a low profile card. I have been looking at this card. PNY VCG86512D2GXWB GeForce 8600 GT 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile.
My computer has a power supply of 250W and I am not sure if it will be able to to run this card.

Specs of my current computer. Dell 530s
2gb Ram
Intel Pentium Dual CPU 2.00ghz
Current Video card is really bad.

I want to be able to run Aion at a decent fraps.

Help will be appreciated

350watt is the recommended psu. No go without a psu upgrade as well.

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

I do not accept support questions via PM

Except of course that the slim profile case won't fit an ATX PSU. So it's a PSU and case upgrade and crossed fingers that the other components are good (cable lengths reach, 3.5" HDD etc).

There are in order of increasing severity: lies, darn lies, statistics, and computer benchmarks. - diskinfo man page
