Default upgrade the dell inspire 518

hi sorry for bad english im portuguese

anyways i buy this dell inspire 518 maybe 2 weeks ago and it only comes with low-end radeon.

i wish to play games like world of warcraft and i want to upgrade video card so i buy 9800 gt however when i plug in i get red LED? light, i do some research and my power supply is only 350 i think and i want to buy this one Ultra LSP650 650-Watt Power Supply - ATX, SATA-Ready, SLI-Ready, 135mm Fan in Canada at TigerDirect.ca

this will work in my set up?

yes it will work. it's an ATX PSU. 90% of the psu's you find on sites like newegg or tigerdirect are all ATX. doesn't matter if it's a different psu, 90% of the time it will be ATX so it'll work. Use the search feature next time to see if you're question has already been asked/answer.
A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.
