Unfortunately, if you buy the GT 440 it will not be able to run on your system without a new power supply unit.

According to your computer's specifications, you only have a 220W PSU. the GT 440 will require at least 300W at a bare minimum. Considering most estimates on GPUs for power are way too low, you'd probably need at least a 500W PSU to be on the safe side and allow for peripherals. You would definitely not be able to run this graphics card.

according to your computer's specifications, it will take a PCI Express 2.0 low profile card. So it should work.
