With that card I wouldn't look at anything less than a 500-600W power supply. Something like this would do nicely,

Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-550VX 550W ATX12V V2.2 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Power Supplies

P.S. That card requires two 6 pin connectors.

If your current power supply has enough power you can just buy a 4-pin molex connector to 6-pin PCI Express connector adapter.

An Acer computer, the power supply won't be much above the bare minimum to run the computer with the hardware it comes with.

Gotta watch some of mfg's as well as they sometimes don't use standard plugs on the mobo and such...so it can be a bit tricky getting a power supply that works.
