Just remember before you buy that card to find out its power requirements and make sure you power supply is big enough to handle the electrical load needed.

No, But if the card requires a power supply of 350 watts or greater, that card might not work. Most packaged PC's these days have 350 to 400 watt power supplies to keep up with there energy star rating.

Geter just think of it this way.  If you have a 300 watt power supply and upgrade to 500, that is 200 more watts.  That is the equivalent of about 3 lights being turned on.  So just turn off three lights in the house when you are on the computer.  If you talk your mom into buying the energy saver bulbs, you will be able to get an even bigger power supply.
